An intensive week of contemporary dance – ideal for those of you who want to experience a week in the life of being in a dance company. This year we are partnering with National Dance Company Wales (NDCW).

Come and improve your contemporary dance technique through daily technique classes and unleash your creativity through creating choreography guided by choreographer Matteo Marfoglia (NDCW Associate Artist) and Angharad Jones (Theatr Clwyd Dance Associate). We will explore some of NDCW repertoire as well as site specific work. This is the perfect challenge for any young aspiring dancer to develop and learn new skills this summer!
