Centre for Advanced Training DanceEast Ipswich

I have a new job that I am very proud of- I am a contemporary technique teacher for levels 4 and 5 on the CAT programme at DanceEast.

I am very pleased to be joining Elsa and the team at DanceEast in delivering lessons to the young and enthusiast students on the CAT programme. I had a few weeks with them last year, and am I now beginning this term as their new regular tutor.

We begin this term with regular classes, later this year there will be a focus on partner work and I’ll also be setting a piece on them. Watch this space!

Vestige

In December 2015 Wayne Parsons Dance began the development of a new work titled Vestige. Vestige sees Wayne treading new ground as he works for the first time with writer Ankur Bahl and Dramaturg Pooja Ghai to bring to life his exciting new work that integrates text and movement.

This initial R&D was supported by Akademi, Rich Mix and DanceEast through their Choreographic Development Fund. It was also generously supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
