Secondary Education

'Dance is the most popular physical activity after football for young people.' Dance manifesto

Young people enjoy dance as an expressive art form and as social recreation. It plays a key part in contemporary culture and is growing in popularity.

Secondary projects are often inspired by themes within a ballet such as love and loss, conflict and resolution or more abstract themes such as time and space.

Participants will be introduced to the Company and ballet, experience the roles of creator, performer, leader and critic, learning movement skills and choreographic techniques. Working with professional dancers and musicians challenges stereotypes, inspires and raises aspirations.

Workshops can be tailored to your requirements, whether it is engaging hard to reach groups, introducing ballet technique or challenging gifted and talented groups.
