People Dancing's Summer School
The People Dancing Summer School takes place annually, usually in the last week of July at De Montfort University, Leicester. Over the last 11 years it's grown from 4 to 13 courses being offered during the summer school with participants and tutors coming from all over the world to take part in a wide range of courses that meet the needs of community dance practitioners, artists and leaders.
As well as providing courses the Summer School also provides community practitioners with the opportunity to network, share good practices, share ideas and take time-out for reflection and learning.
You can get a flavour of the summer schools by visiting our Events and activities archive and viewing information about previous summer schools.
Information about future courses is usually made available on this website around the start of each year when course applications open so watch this space.
People Dancing's 11th Summer School dates were Monday 22 July - Friday 26 July 2019 inclusive.
