Half term projects
We have exciting projects lined up for each of our four Youth Companies.
Spring Half Term 2017
All Youth Company members had the opportunity to take part in choreographic workshops, where they were mentored by Sue Goodman (Step into Dance Programme and Artistic Director). They created short pieces - duets, trios or solos - which will be performed at the Spring Sharings and other events. For some, the work also contributed to their Silver Arts Award.
Summer Half Term 2017
Thriving choreographer Jessica Williams will devise a piece for the Contemporary Company dancers as well as for a group of Company alumni. Thanks to a partnership with World Heart Beat Music Academy, choreographer Sarah Blanc will collaborate with composer Julian Joseph to create a dance piece with an original score and live musicians for the Inclusive Company. The commissioned works will be performed on the Royal Festival Hall stage as part of Step into Dance’s 10 year anniversary celebration at Step LIVE! 2017.
