We recognise that most of our students have their sights set on careers as professional performers and our in-house Link Talent Agency was created to help these desires become reality.
Having spent three years at Urdang, we know our students strengths, weaknesses and desires inside and out. This helps us match our to-be grads to roles, performances, agents, casting directors and other opportunities that are a genuine fit for our students’ skills.
All interested third year students are represented by our in-house agency, Link Talent.
Link Talent is the bespoke agency linking Urdang’s final year students to the industry. Current students have agency representation with the main objective to help maximise support and advice to students, and to place them into high quality productions.
Link Talent has successfully placed current Urdang students in prime TV dance and talent shows and has organised auditions for acclaimed West End productions, UK Tours, Commercial Dance, Films, TV Programmes, Commercials, Pantomimes, Cruises and productions. Every student is provided with the chance to audition for various exciting projects.
Students can be represented by Link Talent for up to six months after graduation, allowing students the best opportunity in their transition from student to professional.
Link Talent creates unique opportunities for casting directors, agents and other leading professionals, giving them a sneak preview into Urdang’s emerging talent. Providing the industry with a valuable first introduction to the students, Link Talent matches Urdang’s fresh, raw talent with elite contracts.
