Choreography Course with Dance Umbrella
27 Sep – 18 Oct 2018


How are we moved by watching dance? Why does a performance leave a lasting impression?

This autumn we have teamed up with Dance Umbrella to offer a unique four week choreography course for adults. 

Led by dance artist Amy Bell you'll attend shows and talks as part of Dance Umbrella 2018 and delve into the performances through creative movement and dynamic discussion workshops at Siobhan Davies Studios. From these performances, you’ll chew over and digest, remember, misremember and reinvent, explore and play with your diverse experiences as audience members. The course provides a rare opportunity to investigate the ideas, themes and dialogues in the work of the Dance Umbrella within a warm and sociable environment.

This course is open to all and requires no previous dance or choreographic experience.

The cost of the course is £185, please note payment can be taken in instalments. This is all inclusive of the following:

Workshops at Siobhan Davies Dance:

  • Three x 2-hour workshops with dance artist Amy Bell exploring how we see dance and investigating our embodied responses to the performances through movement, choreographic process and constructive group dialogue
