Community Classes

We love to dance with our community! Come join us in our weekly classes we offer!

Tuesday, December 6 – Masterclass with Jamaal Burkmar of Extended Play (UK)

This a workshop with a focus on how musicality affects choreography and movement language. We begin by warming up the body up through a mix of improvisation and tasks. We’ll focus on playing with our qualities, groove, speed, connection to the people around us as well as our physical ambition. You’ll also be introduced to different principles used in Extended Play’s ways of creating ‘universes’, which we’ll explore more of by setting them up and playing around with!

Jamaal Burkmar is an international award-winning choreographer whose first creation was as a second-year student at the Northern School for Contemporary Dance (NSCD) where he created “Ocean”. The piece gained critical acclaim and was performed around the North until it became the first and only undergraduate commissioned for VERVE, the postgraduate company at NSCD. The success of this piece led to Jamaal being awarded the highly prestigious ‘New Adventures Choreography Award’. He has since been commissioned by and received support from the Dance Hub in Birmingham, Leeds Dance Partnership, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Mobius Dance and more. Jamaal’s work has a strong relationship to music and sits in many spaces, outdoor, theatrical and online.
