People Dancing's Summer School
“At the end of a years’ teaching it is easy to feel tired and stagnant. People Dancing’s Summer School never fails to reassure, enrich and provide inspiration for the year ahead.”

People Dancing’s annual Summer School is a unique professional development opportunity for dance artists and practitioners, offering a diverse programme with internationally respected course leaders. Over 680 dance artists and practitioners have taken part since 2009. Practical courses provide learning and skills development, connection with peers and time out for reflection in a supportive and creative environment. There are also morning technique classes and evening seminars, opportunities to network, share learning and good practices.

You can get a flavour of the summer schools by visiting our Events and activities archive and viewing information about previous summer schools.
