Professional Class with James Cousins

Autumn 2018


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Professional Class 

All professional classes at The Place are intended for high-level dancers only. These classes offer professional dancers an opportunity to maintain their skills and abilities, network with other professionals and even maybe find new projects to work on.

If you are an amateur dancer, there are lots of other opportunities for you to engage with. Browse our adult classes programme for more information.

These classes require professional standards from participants and early arrival is required for warm up.

About the Class

James’ physically demanding and fast paced class combines his floor work practice with influences from Yoga to Beyoncé.

The class aims to encourage dancers to find the continuation of energy throughout movements through a series of exercises that shift through space, move in and out of the floor and push the body to its extremes.

About James Cousins

James has been recognised by Time Out magazine as one of the future faces of dance, called ‘a rising star’ by The Independent and described by Matthew Bourne as ‘one of the UK’s most promising choreographic talents’.

As Artistic Director of James Cousins Company he has created works that have toured throughout the UK and abroad to popular and critical acclaim, as well as also choreographing the likes of pop star Anne-Marie and super model Kristen McMenamy.

James was the winner of the inaugural New Adventures Choreographer Award and as a freelance choreographer has been commissioned to create work for companies around the world including National Ballet of Chile, Oper Graz, Royal Ballet of Flanders and Scottish Ballet.

James is a Work Place artist at The Place and in summer 2015 he was selected to be a part of Sadler’s Wells’ four year Summer University programme.
