Inspired by Shobana’s choreography, our workshops are for all ages and abilities; we engage the body as well as the mind in being creative. Participants explore her unique contemporary dance technique, company repertoire and creative tasks. We also offer residencies, masterclasses, professional development days, INSET for teachers and mock auditions for higher education students.

Our sessions are tailored around your needs and your schedule, whether you’re a school teacher or a dance group leader. They usually last from two hours to a full day (or more!). We are also an accredited Arts Award centre (Explore and Discover level) and can help you deliver your Arts Award offer.


We ask, whenever possible, for a contribution to cover our costs. Through the generosity of our supporters, our sessions are subsidised, therefore we are sometimes able to offer free workshops to organisations that meet the relevant criteria. For further information and to book, please contact Verity Richards.
