Cygnet School

What is Cygnet School?
A year long programme for dancers aged 12-18 providing fun, engaging opportunities to develop their dance and creative skills through the work and methodology of the New Adventures unique storytelling style, in a safe and fun environment. The Cygnet company meets monthly at our partner home, The Marlowe in Canterbury, where they take part in contemporary classes, fitness, conditioning and creative sessions. Mentored by leading artists and teachers from New Adventures, the dancers are supported throughout, and there are also opportunities to engage with the company, watch performances and learn about the many other roles and careers that are possible within the arts.

Who is Cygnet School for?
• Aged 12-18 or up to the age of 24 if d/Deaf or disabled
• Have some dance experience (all styles welcome)
• Passionate about movement and acting

We are particularly interested in welcoming dancers from a global majority background, as well as young people who have experienced less opportunities in dance and those that have barriers to access due to cost.
