Summer School 2019: Dance & Drama with Steppaz
19 - 23 August
Explore different dance & drama styles, improvisation, choreography and freestyle
The Bernie Grant Arts Centre Summer School is back! Are you aged 14 – 18 and living in Tottenham? Are you interested in hip hop, dance, or comic books? This is one of three workshops on offer, run by highly skilled artists, during the summer holidays. We’re offering you the opportunity to get creative and delve a little deeper into your interests or perhaps a chance to develop a new passion.
About the Dance and Drama Workshops
Over the week of the summer school, you’ll get to explore the history of hip hop and how this underground movement transitioned into the mainstream. You’ll get the chance to explore different dance styles, techniques, choreography and freestyle. You’ll learn drama skills, improvisation techniques and the best bit – you’ll get to create your own pieces to perform with the group.
What to Bring
To get the most out of the workshops please bring comfy clothes that you can move around in and of course comfy trainers. It’ll be thirsty work so it’s a good idea to bring a bottle of water and a packed lunch. Most importantly bring loads of enthusiasm and energy!
