Community Dance Summer School in Leicester


Monday 23 July – Saturday 28 July: De Montfort University, Leicester, UK

Ready to boost your career in community dance? Then People Dancing’s 10th Summer School can give you just the lift you need.

If you want to learn more about dance with children and young people, there’s a Summer School pathway that starts with developing your somatic practice, takes in dance in primary schools and ends with Performance-Parkour (2PK).

There’s another pathway for the week that’s aimed at those interested in dance for health and wellbeing, exploring repertory, dancing with older people and dance for people living with Parkinson’s, before reaching a final session with Shobana Jeyasingh Dance. There are other course options available so you can create your own unique pathway if you prefer.

When you factor in a range of morning technique classes, world-class tutors and free business skills development advice, it promises to be a week to transform your practice. You can apply to join us for a day, for a series of courses or for the full week – and it gets better: there are bursaries available for young practitioners (under 26) and other bursaries for those focusing on the development of their Parkinson’s practice!
