As part of the company’s touring schedule, the dancers deliver beginner, intermediate and professional level classes and workshops. Workshops involve a technical warm-up, repertory and creative tasks.
Please email email@example.com to discuss your requirements and we are happy to put together a tailor made workshop for your group.
Mark Bruce and the company offer a range of opportunities for students in pre-professional training, from masterclasses to half or full day workshops. Workshops offer an experience of the Mark Bruce Company’s style and repertory, as well as creative work. If you are a conservatoire or institute of higher learning please contact us to discuss what would be suitable for your students.
Our dancers are highly experienced at leading workshops and dance classes specifically for GCSE and A-level dance students. All workshops begin with a dance class warm up and are finished with a Question and Answer session with the company dancers. Additionally workshops can also include repertory, creative tasks, feedback on other dance coursework, discussions and informal sharings.
Mark Bruce’s most recent work Made in Heaven is an ideal piece for comparative study at both GCSE and A-Level. The work uses both narrative and abstract elements, referencing myth, literature and film . Workshops based on Made in Heaven are a great way for students to expand their physical experience and understanding of different styles of contemporary dance.
