Easter Dance Intensive Call Out – Derbyshire based dancers and performers

Déda and Derby Theatre in partnership with National Dance Company Wales are offering Derbyshire based dancers and performers aged between 13-18yrs a unique and exciting opportunity this Easter.

Participants will work with NDCWales Dance Ambassador Kerryn Wise for 3 days to create an exciting performance which will be shown as a curtain raiser in the foyer area before NDCWales present their triple bill Terra Firma at Derby Theatre on Tuesday 8th May 2018.

Dancers will take part in creative workshops in contemporary dance and physical theatre to explore the themes and processes of NDCWales work. This intensive will explore creative tasks used by choreographer in residence Caroline Finn to develop choreographic material for Folk. Caroline has recently choreographed for BBC Young Dancer of the Year finalist and created Bloom with Phoenix Dance Theatre, she was a winner of the Matthew Bourne New Adventures Choreographer award in 2014. Participants will learn small sections of repertoire and then be encouraged to develop these using tasks and choreographic devices, building material to create a final 10-15mins group performance piece.
