DanceEast launches Summer Lab
Aimed at dance artists graduating or reaching the end of their training, DanceEast’s three-day intensive Summer Lab offers emerging dance artists learning and development opportunities through high quality, aspirational workshops and seminars from Monday 4 – Wednesday 6 September.
Summer Lab will be led by high-profile artists: Russell Maliphant, Yael Flexer, Renaud Wiser, Vicki Igbokwe, Tom Hobden and Stuart Waters. Each artist will lead daily sessions for participants, including technique classes and creative workshops, in addition to focusing on helping participants build a professional network, secure funding and market portfolio careers.
Participants will experience what it means to live and work as a professional in the dance industry, whilst networking with this wide range of high calibre artists, companies and sector professionals.
Summer Lab is part of DanceEast’s work in contributing to the infrastructure of dance by bridging the gap in provision between professional training and getting young artists career-ready. It is led in partnership with UNIT, the East’s leading participatory dance company. UNIT, a collaboration between choreographer Tom Hobden and film director Kate Flurrie, creates projects, performances, films and training programmes that support dancers from all backgrounds and experiences.
