workshops and demonstrations
Our aim is to provide opportunities for people to experience professional dance, either by watching or by taking part.
Our dance workshops are designed for people of all ages and abilities, adapted appropriately and often conducted alongside a demonstration from our dancers. We have given workshops at local and pre-professional dance schools, Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools, Colleges and Universities, Care and Retirement Homes. The workshops are great fun and encourage movement for well-being, expression and creativity.
We have a carefully selected group of professional dancers who lead these workshops, all DBS checked, highly trained in their field and have extensive teaching experience. Our leaders are friendly and encouraging by nature, creating a safe environment for all participants to feel comfortable and able to experiment with movement.
Workshops are usually between 45-60 minutes and consist of a warm-up, some technical steps, a choreographed routine, creative tasks and an opportunity to share work at the end. There are elements to challenge the participants, both physically and creatively, and to boost confidence and physical awareness. For older participants, we give a more gentle or sitting down workshop, with movements to music, again stimulating creativity, well-being and artistic appreciation.
We offer workshops and demonstrations in a range of dance styles including:
- Street Dance
- Musical Theatre
