Workshops

We offer workshops, residencies, masterclasses, professional development days, INSET for teachers and mock auditions for higher education students. Most of our sessions are aimed at age 12+ and are pitched to suit your needs and experience. 

Inspired by Shobana’s choreography, the sessions focus on the body and mind and being creative. Participants explore her unique contemporary dance technique, repertory and creative tasks. 

Our sessions are delivered by an expert team of professional dance teachers who are DBS checked. All our workshops can be delivered online via Zoom. We are also an accredited Arts Award centre for Explore and Discover level. 

 

Fees

Sessions are costed at 2 hours, half day or full day rate and delivered by one or two dance facilitators. Depending on location, the sessions may incur travel and accommodation costs. For information, please contact Alice Odin, Head of Creative Learning.
