When can our school have a workshop?
Workshops are available across the UK all year round. Please provide your preferred date on the enquirers form and we will contact you to confirm whether or not your first choice is available.
Where do the workshops take place?
Workshops are delivered in your school; there must be a clear space which is a reasonable size (minimum 30ft x 30ft). It must be warm and have a suitable floor for dance (i.e. sprung or wooden floor, not carpet or concrete). We aim to have a musician at every workshop therefore a tuned piano is ideal or alternatively a keyboard. It must be established at the booking stage if no piano or keyboard is available, and a CD player or MP3 connection must be provided.
