This autumn 2024 and into spring 2025, Vincent Dance Theatre is offering a range of practical workshops and residencies in Higher Education settings to experience VDT’s creative methodology first-hand. Designed to expand practice and knowledge, workshops will primarily be led by long term VDT collaborator and Artistic Associate Robert Clark, with a safeguarding specialist training day offered by Artistic Director Charlotte Vincent.

Workshops and Residencies aim to enrich and enhance BA Dance (contemporary), Performing Arts (Dance specialism), Dance in Education, Screen Dance, Experimental, Applied or Physical Theatre courses at Universities and Conservatoires and aim to develop artistic intelligence and new creative skills, enhance technical understanding, build students’ confidence and versatility, encourage personal experimentation, understand safe approaches to working with non-professionals and equip students with an understanding of contemporary choreographic practice.
