Attached to this work have been several workshops, events and residencies for all ages, backgrounds and experience.
To continue our inspiring dance education work we are again running a Summer School that will be led by dance professionals and will exclusively take place on the stage of the Royal Concert Hall, including a performance on the final day for family and friends.
The Summer School is divided into two groups - ballet and street dance. The ballet group is for children aged from 7 to 12, whilst the street dance group is for any age up to 18. Both groups will work independently at the start of the Summer School, but will join forces for the last two days to produce the final show.

Lindy Hop, Jitterbug and Jive are the types of swing dance that came out of the early Jazz & Swing era of the 1930's.

Clown Workshop - Playing with Tragedy
Saturday 9 November
10.30am - 4.30pm Royal Concert Hall, Level 4 Foyer
Tragedy is an opportunity for the Clown to play on a grand scale when surrounded by huge emotions and circumstances. In dire circumstances the clown finds playfulness and beauty in tragedy.
Inspired by Slava's Snow Show this day-long workshop will look at how the Clown can still play when the usual setbacks mount up to become truly tragic, with the Clown invoking laughter, sympathy, tears or wonder - or all four at the same time!
This workshop is an excellent opportunity for participants to further develop their performance skills, as well as discovering more about clowning and play.
Suitable for adults aged 18+ with some performance experience.
The workshop will be led by Gerry Flanagan. Over the past twenty years Gerry has become one of the foremost clowns in this country and overseas, working for companies such as the David Glass Ensemble, Bubble Theatre and Clown Selvaggio in Italy, as well as teaching clowning in schools, colleges and theatres. Gerry is also the artistic director of Shifting Sands Theatre Company www.shiftingsandstheatre.co.uk
