Professional Class with Michael Clark Company

Michael Clark Company is offering dancers an opportunity to experience a professional level class and gain a basic introduction to some of the technical aspects required by Clark's choreography. The class includes elements of company rep, in particular choreography from recent productions come, been and gone and animal / vegetable / mineral. The class is led by long term company dancer Melissa Hetherington.

Melissa was born in London and started her professional training as a Junior Associate at The Royal Ballet School. After graduating from The London Studio Centre in 2000 she worked with Sheron Wray’s JazzXchange Music and Dance Company. Melissa joined Michael Clark Company in 2001 working with him exclusively, performing in all of the company's works.

Melissa performed with Mikhail Baryshnikov in Michael Clark’s Rattle Your Jewellery, and has worked alongside Michael on projects including Alexander McQueen’s fashion shows and with photographers Nick Knight, David Bailey, Miles Aldridge and Will Davidson.
