Dance Umbrella and Siobhan Davies Dance are delighted to work together this year developing a short programme of insights into dance with the Next Choreography group. Next Choreography is a year-long programme by Siobhan Davies Dance for 14 -21 year olds keen to learn about choreographic processes used across artistic disciplines and cultivate their curiosity along the way.
This collaboration started with a talk on dance programming delivered by Dance Umbrella Artistic Director Emma Gladstone in May 2016, and continues with additional workshops and a seminar on watching and writing about dance with journalist and writer Sanjoy Roy in October 2016. Sanjoy has written a resource to help approach writing about dance with confidence. Read it here.
We will be inviting members of the Next Choreography Group to review shows and talk about their experiences on their blog and ours throughout the year.
