On 1 June, One Dance UK member, 2Faced Dance Company presents for its fourth year, The BENCH Bitesize: Surrey supported by People Dancing. Join 2Faced Dance Company and guests at Guildford School of Acting at the University of Surrey for a one-day, bitesize edition of their game-changing programme: The BENCH.

Set up in direct response to serious concerns about the lack of equality faced by female choreographers within the dance sector, The BENCH Bitesize features an inspirational key-note speaker, invited contributors and sessions from BENCH Alumni talking about their own experiences and careers, and group problem-solving / change-making exercises.

Address issues, make actions and leave with enhanced skills, confidence and knowledge to make the next move.
