  • April 2017 News

    April 2017 News

    April has been another busy and exciting month for James Wilton Dance. James spent two weeks in Sweden with Norrdans. Whilst company dancer Harlan Rust had a great week setting some LEVIATHAN rep on the CAT students at The Place, London. 

    Next we travelled up to Newcastle and had a week making a piece for students at Newcastle College along with teaching professional class at Dance City. 

    The company came back together to re-rehearse LEVIATHAN at Lakeside Arts, Nottingham ahead of our show there. We had a great ‘first visit’ performance at Lakeside Arts. Finally to round up the month we have been leading workshops with Dance 4 CAT Nottingham, Central School of Ballet, Leicester College and New College Nottingham. It has been a pleasure to meet and teach so many talented young dancers this month. 

    A big thank you to Shona Powell and the team at Lakeside Arts for supporting us with rehearsal space.
