COVID-19 Update

As we respond to government action and global concerns, we are taking every measure to protect the safety and wellbeing of our teachers, students, artists, staff, audiences, workshop participants and everyone else that we meet. 

October 2020 Update

Schools:
Our school workshops have now re-opened, with extra Covid safety measures in place.
In addition to our usual workshop programme, we are offering schools 'Back to School Wellbeing Workshops' designed to support the recovery curriculum. Click here for more information.
 
Nourish Online Dance Intensive:
In place of our summer course, we are delighted to be partnering with organisations and dance artists from across the world to deliver Nourish Online Dance Intensive. Click here for more information. 
 
Elevate 2021:
In alignment with the ever-changing government advice, we made the decision not to run a course this academic year. However we currently plan to run Elevate Dance Company and Elevate Dance Foundation beginning in September 2021 for which we are now accepting applications. 
 
Journey of the Magi 2021: 
Unfortunately our 2020 tour was unable to go ahead as planned, however we are planning to tour Journey of the Magi in 2021
 
Parable: 
We have launched Parable for primary schools. Click here to find out more about our new performance workshops, and here to find out about our Good Samaritan Workshops and Lost Coin Assembly Performance.

June 2020 Update

Here is the action that we have taken: 

  1. Following nationwide school closures, all of our school workshops have been postponed until schools fully re-open later in the year.  
  2. Due to the uncertainty, and the impact on so many people of making changes last minute, we have decided to cancel our annual Summer Course that was due to take place in July. 
  3. We made the decision, based on advice from Public Health England, for Elevate Dance Company 2020 to finish for their course two months earlier than planned. The rest of the course, and therefore their international tour, has unfortunately been cancelled. We hope that our wonderful students will be able to take with them what they have learned in order to continue spreading the message of hope and love in their future performance and community outreach. 
  4. Except for retrieving mail, all our office staff are now working remotely from home.  

Looking ahead: 

  1. In alignment with the ever-changing government advice, we currently plan to run Elevate 21 commencing in January for which we are accepting applications. Our talented teachers have developed online auditions that can be completed at home, so please do email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like more information about how to apply for Elevate 2021. 
  2. We are expecting to tour Journey of the Magi during advent as planned. We are adapting our cancellation policy to help churches and theatres / arts centres feel confident about making bookings during this uncertain time. Do get in touch if you would like to celebrate Christmas with your community with a production of this hilarious and thoroughly Christmassy interpretation of T.S. Eliot’s poem.   
  3. Plans for the development of our new interactive show Parable Quest have been put on hold. We hope to continue with this project as soon as it is deemed safe for our dancers to rehearse in the studio together again.
