YouthLab: Dance presents
Body Politic Dance Masterclass
Mon 21 – Wed 23 Feb 2022 | 10am – 4pm | Ages: 14 – 17
Join Oxford-based professional Hip-Hop Theatre Company, Body Politic Dance for an exciting three-day dance masterclass.
Across these three days, young people develop and create a curtain-raiser which is to be performed on stage as part of Body Politic’s professional production THEM on Friday 11 March.
This is a unique opportunity for young people to learn repertoire from the show, learn street dance technique, and gain deeper insight into the processes behind creating dance theatre work for the stage.
As part of this programme, local charity, Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse And Rape Crisis Centre (OSARCC), delivers a workshop on consent. This content is woven into the creative process*.
Ages: 14 – 17
Tickets: £60 for three-day course
Full bursary places available: email Abie Walton on email@example.com.
