Dance Summer School
22 – 26 July 2013
Springs Dance Company is delighted to announce a brand new programme for its ever popular Summer School. Participants of all levels in dance experience can now apply to one of two parallel courses, each with a different focus. The Springs Dance Company Summer School is a creative, inspiring and refreshing week of dance and Christian fellowship.
Course A is a creative, reflective workshop using dance and movement to explore, communicate, worship and inspire. Each day will begin with a time spent in prayer and reflection after which participants will be lead through a contemporary technique class. This class will focus on ease and flow of movement through the body and core strength to support a full range of movement. The class will be developed through the week to gently increase quality, strength, flexibility and fluidity. The workshops will then focus around the theme “Awake My Soul!” creative movement, learned dance sequences and improvisation. There will be a short sharing on the final evening.
Course B is an energetic, performance focussed workshop that will involve learning and creating movement to be presented in the final evening. Each day will begin with a time spent in prayer, worship and reflection. Following on from the devotional time, will be a contemporary dance technique class. Classes will be developed through the week in order to increase performance quality, strength, flexibility and stamina. The week will focus on choreography and repertoire and participants will work with choreographers from Springs Dance Company to create a short dance presentation that will be performed as part of the programme on Friday evening. Based on biblical text, the choreography will be designed to challenge, enrich, encourage and inspire those participating as well as those watching the performance.
The Summer School runs from 10:30am to 4:30pm Monday – Thursday and from 10.30am til late on Friday.
The venues are easily accessed by public transport from London. Participants come from far and wide to take part in Summer School, and we can provide a list of B&Bs to help you find accommodation
