Young Choreographers event

Dec 3 – 17, 2023

Workshops for young choreographers and dance teachers to improve their choreography, performance, confidence, and resilience.

Event structure and purpose:

The workshops will be mostly focussed on student choreography – helping students to be more creative (through improvisation), better and faster at choreography, more confident, better and more expressive performers, calmer under pressure, and more resilient.

Each workshop will have teaching, choreographing, and performing components. They involve training dancers to be better choreographers and performers, and training teachers how to develop and improve their skills in these contexts. This is challenging for all concerned, and audience members will be able to get insights into how this process works, and how to ensure that it is safe for participants.

It will be especially useful for dance (and other) teachers, but you will need to be a participant to get a proper understanding.

Sunday 3 December – 2.00-4.00
Monday 4 December – 6.30-7.30
