Twenty four young singers and dancers from Rotterdam Codarts and Albeda College will be offered internships to be stand in performers for Eurovision 2021.
AVROTROS / NPO / NOS have announced today that fourteen dancers and ten singers will be offered internships for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The dancers and singers will be used as part of the stand-in rehearsals ahead of the contest in May. These dancers and singers will perform the competing entries and give delegations a chance to see how their act will look on stage before the rehearsals two weeks before the contest.
Said Kasmi from the Rotterdam council commented:
I think it is great that the organization of the Eurovision Song Contest offers this unique and undoubtedly unforgettable internship to students from Albeda and Codarts. I hope that this example inspires and motivates companies to take action. Because more than 4000 MBO students are still looking for an internship in the Rijnmond region. Today’s students are the employees of the future!
The twenty four dancers and singers who will be take part in the stand-in rehearsals have already been selected. The internships are a great opportunity in a period of time where culture students are struggling for internships and opportunities due to COVID-19.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on May 18, 20 and 22 in Rotterdam. The scenario under which the contest will take place is set to be decided in mid-February.
