Shobana Jeyasingh Dance have been providing high-quality dance education in the UK for more than 20 years. Their company’s dancers use Shobana’s research and choreographic process to engage pupils with contemporary dance.

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance recently delivered a year-long residency at Goodrich Community Primary School in London, working with over 150 children weekly (from year 1 to year 6). Pupils explored contemporary dance and movements, became active and creative and worked together to create short choreographies. They had a great time at the school and they hope to work in depth with other primary schools in the future and showcase how creativity through dance, even at an early age, can have wonderful benefits.

To accompany their  upcoming Contagion production, touring throughout the UK this Autumn, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance have devised an online platform to encourage anyone to dance. Follow their easy tutorial and help them ‘infect’ UK audiences with the creativity and empowering medium of contemporary dance. Contagion commemorates the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic which killed more people that the First World War itself.

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance offer workshops in schools and community groups with one of their dancers; due to our current funding, we are able to offer free workshops this Autumn.
