Few spaces left at Vincent Dance Theatre summer school for young people

Led by Artistic Director/CEO Charlotte Vincent, Vincent Dance Theatre has been moving people and making them think differently since 1994, producing socially-engaged dance theatre work on stageon film and online. The company delivers extensive research, participation and professional development programmes, working specifically with women and children to highlight issues around gender equality and equality of opportunity for those whose voices may not otherwise be heard.

For a week in August, Vincent Dance Theatre is working with Brighton & Hove City Council to put on a Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme during the summer holidays from 14 – 18 August 2023 at The Dance Space, Brighton.

There are a few places still available per day for young people aged 11 – 16 who receive benefits-related free school meals. There are also some paid for HAF places are also available each day for the same age group.

Join them for a week of dance, physical theatre and performance skills. This five-day summer school encourages you to make performance material, meet new friends, get creative and have fun. Each day will include activities like: warm up exercises, learning to stretch and strengthen muscles, taking part in movement games, learning how to partner with another dancer (transferring weight and lifting safely), how to move in unison, how to create your own movement/theatre material, using your voice in performance (i.e. singing and speaking) and learning fun VDT techniques such as moving in slow motion. Sessions are led by experienced professional dance artists.

No previous dance theatre experience is necessary. All young people will be offered a nutritious lunch and a healthy snack each day. You can book the whole week as a summer school block, or you can book spaces per day if that works better for you.
