The Student Choreographic Showcase provides an opportunity to see original work by young choreographers and dancers who will go on to redefine their industry.
During workshops and choreography classes, students are introduced to a varied palette of creative methods from which they may draw inspiration. They have access to studios, choose dancers, and are given support and encouragement by staff, however essentially they are left free to develop their own ideas. There is no ‘house style’: what emerges may be an expression of a dramatic, emotional, aesthetic or narrative idea, or a response to a favourite piece of music.
The School has produced a number of the most significant British choreographers such as Frederick Ashton, Antony Tudor and Christopher Bruce. More recent graduates of the School have also found much success in creating their own companies, such as Mark Bruce Company, Impermanence Dance, The London Ballet Company, and Richard Chappell Dance.
