Winter Intensive 2023
4-7 December

Are you an emerging professional dance artist, recent graduate or 3rd year dance student looking to enrich your practice and training?

Led by our Rehearsal Director Noora Kela and assisted by other company dancers and Shobana Jeyasingh, the SJD Winter Intensive will enable you to immerse yourself in Shobana’s creative process, learn existing company repertory and develop methods of devising movement.
