London Contemporary Dance School introduces their new International Summer School

9 May 2019

For the first time this summer, London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS) will open its doors for an International Summer School to offer interested dancers a chance to experience what life is like as a student at one of the UK’s leading contemporary dance schools.

Participants will be able to get a taste of what it feels like to audition for LCDS, to study here and what to expect living as a student in London. Summer school students will take contemporary technique and ballet dance classes with LCDS teachers at the school’s central London location The Place. They will have the opportunity to meet with current students, experience audition toolkit sessions and take a trip to the prestigious theatre at The Place. For international students, there is an added opportunity to develop their language skills at the same time through a collaboration with Language Link, a local English language school. The new International Summer School at London Contemporary Dance School is intended for ages 16+.

There are 2 options:

1) The language and dance option will be a 5 day course (19-23 August) – spending 2 days on a language course with Language Link, a local English language school as well as taking part in fun, social activities in the surrounding area such as visiting galleries, museums and local attractions in London. The following 3 days involve practical dance classes including contemporary technique, ballet and the audition toolkit session. Students will meet with current LCDS students to learn about life as a student in Central London and end with a theatre trip at The Place.

2) The dance option will be a 3 day course (21-23 August) – This option includes all the practical dance classes including contemporary technique, ballet and the audition toolkit session. Students will meet with current LCDS students to learn about life as a student in Central London and end with a theatre trip. This option excludes the language course.
