Choreography Course 

A 21-week course in three, independent seven-week modules, covering: 

1 Creation of a solo: the individual performer

2 Creation of a duet: the relationship between performers

3 Creation of a group piece: connecting performers as an entity.

The three modules taken together make up the full Creative Movement and Performance Course. However, each module is a stimulating and self-contained programme in its own right, and so can be taken in any order, or individually as a one-off block of classes.

This course will strengthen movement within performance through a weekly programme that empowers participants to develop awareness of their own body and the space it inhabits. 

By exploring exercises which interpret human movement, physical communication skills are developed through observation, improvisation and composition.
