School Events

Summer Programme:
 

Saturday 24th July - Choreography Collective - Pakenham Village Hall

 

We are really excited to be doing our first choreography event. This is designed to nurture our students' creativity. 

 

Students are asked to create a dance between 60 - 90 seconds long in their own time. The dance can be of any genre. They can do a solo, or team up and do a collaboration as a duet, trio or group. 

 

On the 24th during the day we will offer a 30 coaching minute slot for each dance to provide feedback for the dancers on their work and provide a costume as requested by the dancer/s. 

 

In the evening, participants and their families will come together for an informal performance of the students' work. 

 

This is open to children from Grade 2 Ballet/Junior Contemporary upwards. 

 

We will be offering 10 slots, these can be filled by a group or a solo. The cost is £10 (+booking fee) per participant. Sign-up to this event here and pay here
