What are Fresh Fridays all about?
Fresh Friday is an exciting aspect of school life for our students and part of our focus on professional development and ensuring our dancers can adapt to different ways of working, along with different styles. Fresh Fridays isn’t a new initiative at Rambert School. Each week we have guest choreographers, dance artists from the Contemporary Dance World and other leaders from the wider Arts Industry visit the School and host workshops. We’ve hosted classes for world class choreographers, award winning dancers and artists exploring new styles and new ideas with our students. It’s a brilliant opportunity for our students to experience new things, creating a dynamic timetable to allow them to experiment with different ways of working and thinking.
We’ve had visiting workshops both online and in the studio covering a broad range of topics including Southeast Asian Dance, Afrobeat, Hip-Hop for Contemporary Dancers, Pottery with a choreographer who works with clay, Musical Theatre and Acting.
We will share the guest contemporary and ballet teachers coming to the School for Fresh Fridays with you, but we will make sure we don’t spoil the surprise for our current students. Stay tuned.
In addition to Fresh Friday we also welcome Guest Ballet Teachers on a regular basis and work with choreographers to teach repertoire work too. Click on the below images to find out more about each guest via their own websites/their company sites.
