Summer 2018

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

Becky’s training began in tae kwan do and gymnastics before training in hip-hop, later discovering contemporary and capoeira; her movement is influenced by all of these styles.

Working across commercial dance to art installation, Becky’s experience creates a wholesome practice, incorporating physically challenging and disciplined training which later transforms into movement initiated from emotion and staying connected to the music, as well as considering performance.
