AN  INSPIRING PROJECT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO TRAIN WITH PROFESSIONAL DANCERS FROM RICHARD ALSTON DANCE COMPANY AND TWO THIRDS SKY

Royal & Derngate and The Core at Corby Cube are delighted to be partnering with Richard Alston Dance Company and Two Thirds Sky on the Alston Inspired project, bringing renowned dance artists and choreographers to Northamptonshire to work with young people.

This is a rare opportunity for those aged 14-19 to experience working with two internationally acclaimed dance companies that is providing a valuable insight into their passion for technique and choreography.

The Alston Inspired project has been working with young people through a series of school and open workshops leading to a masterclass with Richard Alston himself and finally forming a company of 20 young dancers to work with the partners to create a new dance piece performing as a curtain-raiser for Richard Alston Dance Company at Royal & Derngate in October 2017.

It has been an incredible project so far that has seen emerging artists develop their choreography and dance technique with some of the country’s best dance artists to form a new company of young talent.

If you would like to see the curtain-raiser piece on THU 5 & FRI 6 OCTOBER in Derngate, please contact Box Office on 01604 624811.

If you are a young person aged 14-21 years and would like to be involved in dance at Royal & Derngate, please see our Youth Theatre & Young Company page for details of our new Young Company: Dance group starting in September.
