Dancers Tamar Draper and Jo Ashbridge invite you to join them for the Sept – Dec term at State of the Arts in Hull’s old town.

Over twelve weeks participants will work with Tamar & Jo on several short pieces of choreography in-class, with an informal end of project ‘sharing’ evening for those who wish to show what they have learned during the term. 

The weekly class will maintain its focus on improving contemporary dance technique, but this term there is the added opportunity for more collaboration and creative input, giving class attendees more control over process and end product.  

Adult Contemporary Dance Class Sept 11th – Dec 4th State of The Arts Hull 

The end of term sharing event will be opened up to selected artists from different disciplines incl. photography, spoken word, painting etc. The artists will each respond to the performances tying everything together in a relaxed and informal way.   

Adult Contemporary Dance Class with Tamar & Jo (Unseen Beings, Freedom Festival Hull, SLAP York) takes place Wednesday nights at State of the Arts Academy and is open to all levels and abilities. Everyone is welcome to attend, from absolute beginners to experienced dancers.  

By attending the class participants will benefit and have fun learning new dance skills; engage in creative activities and improvisations; build up their confidence in dance, and learn multiple pieces of choreography. 

The end of term performance element of the project is completely optional. (It will be each participant’s individual choice if they wish to take part in the end of project sharing) The class will continue to operate on a drop-in basis – as it has been for the last two years – but Tamar & Jo encourage those who want to be involved in the sharing to attend as many classes as possible.
