Anything from a one-hour class to a full day workshop. Experience Jeyasingh’s work, which is contemporary in style but draws on many traditional forms and influences such as Ballet or Bharata Natyam, a centuries-old Asian classical dance form.
Workshops usually include a combined warm-up of contemporary and Bharata Natyam, learning repertory of our touring work and followed by choreographic tasks. However, the exact contents can be tailored to suit your needs.
Students gain a deeper insight into the working methodologies and creative processes used by Shobana Jeyasingh. Residencies can be structured to suit your timetable either as intensive course or as regular contact over a longer period of time.
Aimed at professional dancers and those in full time dance training. These can be booked specifically for your education establishment or keep your eye on our website, facebook or twitter feed for master-classes in your area!
During rehearsal periods we open selected company classes to dance professionals. Classes are led by our rehearsal director or guest teachers. If you are interested in attending please email your CV to Clare Cody-Richardson.
Want to prepare your students for the next step? Shobana Jeyasingh Dance can deliver mock auditions. The students will be led through the process of an audition, given advice and feedback to work on in order to improve their audition technique.
Work with the Company over a number of days to create a short work to be shown before a performance by Shobana Jeyasingh Dance or as part of a youth dance festival. A wonderful opportunity for students to experience the whole process of choreography and performance with a professional company.
