Dance Summer School
28th July – 1st August 2014
Springs Dance Company is delighted to announce it's 2014 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.
'Springs Summer School gives you the space to develop yourself physically and spiritually'
'This course is the perfect way to explore God through movement'
Suitable for all - including those new to dance
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 led through a contemporary technique class. The workshops will then focus around a biblical theme using creative movement, learned dance sequences and improvisation. There will be a short sharing on the final evening.
'Great classes, great chance to develop choreographic skills, amazing teachers, comfortable environment'
Suitable for those with dance training or at a vocational school
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 piece 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 till 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
