Next Choreography

Next Choreography is a two term course for 16-24 year olds keen to learn about choreography.

Through weekly sessions participants look within and beyond dance to the different choreographic processes used by artists making work across artistic disciplines. Working with a professional choreographer participants try out, test and play with ways of making choreography. 

We support participants to develop choreographic ideas and experiment, informed by their own interests. Through Next Choreography participants attend events and performances, meet guest artists and develop ideas in the studio. Participants make their own work and produce the Next Choreography Festival at Siobhan Davies Studios in July.

The course takes place in term time January – July, with weekly Thursday evening sessions.


Interested in joining? 

Applications for this year’s course open 1 October - 1 December 2019.

Up to 20 participants will be invited to join the course. We are seeking open minded, curious, committed young people. Dance technique and experience is not essential.

The course will start January 2020 and run through to July 2020.

Course fees are £400, with bursaries available.
