Summer Dance Course for 7-11 year olds

If you’re aged 7-11 and you want to learn new dance and creative skills, then the balletLORENT Summer Dance Course is for you.

A week packed with lots of structured creative play, physical improvisations, artistic activities, storytelling and, of course, lots of dancing.

Children will get the chance to look at traditional fairytales and re-imagine the classics by making their own alternative versions, using their own perceptions and imaginations. Focusing on dreams and nightmares, light and shade, the real and the surreal! Delivered by experienced company dancers, it will be an artistic and fun course for children to explore dance, art and creativity.
