Situated in the heart of London, The Place, the UK’s premier centre for dance, offers three weeks of exhilarating dance courses for adults of all abilities.
We are the only organisation offering summer dance courses that are completely flexible, taught by renowned international dance artists and companies.
Create your own programme:
Choose from a wide range of courses including repertoire workshops taught by resident companies, contemporary and ballet techniques, creative workshops, improvisation, Jazz and much more.
Each course runs Monday – Friday. Choose one of four courses per timeslot (up to 4 a day) and design your own unique programme as intense as you wish.
At the end of each week you’ll have the chance to present work in our informal studio sharings.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Place for an inspirational summer of dance.
