Throughout the two-year course students are offered opportunities to connect with the broader community of Torres Vedras and with the Lisbon area with performance opportunities in theatres and at festivals. Students are encouraged to become involved in the production of such events and offered experience in each aspect of the dance world. These external opportunities are developed to offer exposure to the students during their training, not only as performers in the works of others but also as choreographers with the opportunity to share their own creations. Through these real-life performance and presentation opportunities students gain experience in the dance world in a practical and guided manner, building up tools for their future careers which many other more insular courses cannot offer. By reaching out into the community students of Performact build a network, not only with guest choreographers, teachers, producers and other dance professionals, but also of communities and organizations who will be available to support and foster their early career opportunities.
