Start the week

Dancers may choose to attend for one, two or three weeks of the intensive.  At the start of each week, emerging dancers will be allocated to one of three groups.

Over the 3 weeks of Project | CONNECT, dancers will experience the works of some of the most important choreographers of the last 40 years – for example, Hans van Manen, Glen Tetley, Maurice Bejart, Nacho Duato, Wayne McGregor and Mats Ek.  In addition, emerging dancers will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty choreographers Rick McCullough, Philip Taylor, Susan McCullough, Francesca Harper, Dominique Dumais and Shamel Pitts.

Days are intense

A typical morning begins with either a ballet class or Gaga class followed by contemporary technique classes (Graham based modern classes or the Dynamics, Rhythm & Texture workshop with Alleyne Dance).  After lunch, dancers will gain work experience rehearsing already created works and creating new works.  This is an opportunity to develop and refine the technical ability of every successful dancer to mentally and physically interpret, translate and present a choreographer’s ideas.

End of week

At the end of each week, we will have an in-studio presentation at Studio Wayne McGreogor

Networking opportunities 

Emerging dance artists will benefit from a peer group of established professional artists from across the globe who are internationally acclaimed teachers, artists in residence, répétiteurs, current and former artistic directors of dance companies, emerging and independent choreographers.

We are inviting VIPs to Studio Wayne McGregor to view technique classes, repertory classes, choreographic workshops and in-house studio presentations.

Extra-curricular activities

Optional evening and weekend events include dance photography workshop, faculty panel discussions on auditioning techniques, getting your first professional job and taking responsibility for the development of your professional career.

Extra-curricular activities can be arranged for dance and theatre performances, musicals, museums and art galleries in London.  Group tickets are available to visit the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace which are only open to the public in late summer – early autumn.
