At Ludus Dance, we understand how important it is for professional dancers to have the opportunity to maintain physical fitness as well as coming together with other dancers to make, create and share. We aim to support the progression route of dance artists wherever we can and to contribute to a thriving dance ecology in our local and wider community.Most Thursdays, from 10:00-11:30 am, we offer a FREE peer-led Pro Class in our fantastic studio space. Contact us if you'd like to get involved or are interested in leading one of the sessions. The class is suitable for third-year students, new graduates and industry professionals.Look out for updates on our Trigger Facebook Page or sign-up to get update emails.
"I teach and undertake practical and theoretical research into contemporary dance and physical theatre. Sometimes independent dance artists can feel a sense of isolation. In my professional role as a Lecturer in Theatre Studies at Lancaster University, I don't work alongside other dancers on a regular basis. Being part of the local dance community via Pro Class ensures that I don't feel alone. I describe it as my umbilical cord!"
Nigel Stewart (dance artist, scholar, Senior Lecturer Institute of Contemporary Arts (LICA) at Lancaster University)
We also organise regular workshops and masterclasses for dance professionals, such as Step Ahead and Professional Intensives that allow you to explore new areas or refresh your practice. For details on what we've got coming up contact us.
