Performance - One Dance UK Dance Teaching & Participation Conference (Saturday 25th November)

One Dance UK Teaching Conference.jpg

We will be performing at this year's One Dance UK Dance Teaching & Participation Conference on Saturday 25th November. We will be performing our piece, 'Awaken by Night', choreographed by Heather Benson. It will be an exciting event that combines key notes, discussion, practical workshops and research presentations to update, up-skill and uplift the dance teachers both within and outside of the formal education sectors. It will also have tailored content for those that organise or manage dance learning and participation programmes with dance companies or venues.

Drawing upon the work of leaders in dance education and youth dance settings, the conference will be a great place for everyone to network and learn about what’s happening in dance teaching across England.

The evening performance will take place at 6pm at Trinity Laban. For more information about the event, and to book tickets, visit: http://www.onedanceuk.org/event/one-dance-uk-conference-season-2017/

It is a wonderful opportunity for the dancers to further develop themselves as performers.
