Our Education and Outreach department offer culturally diverse dance workshops which are tailored by you, for you.

We work to shape new creative experiences for the people and venues we work with. Workshops can be delivered as long-term residencies, one-off sessions and can culminate in performances for friends and family. Our delivery is flexible and can cater for all of your requirements.


What can we offer you?

As a company BSDC offer cultural and creative insight into dance for both student and teacher within schools, youth organisations and other community settings.

We are an Arts Award Centre and can offer students training in a range of unique qualifications that support anyone up to age 25 to grow as artists and leaders.


Working with schools

We provide a new approach to learning through fun, informative sessions which are memorable, productive and artistically led by your students. We facilitate peer-to-peer learning in an environment where self-expression, personal development and creative experimentation is encouraged.

Our workshops offer the space for teachers and students alike to play and learn alongside each other whilst developing new skills.

All workshops are supported by either a CPD workshop, information packs or 1:1 meetings and school staff are at the core of all preparation and planning to ensure we are offering an effective tailored package to suit your students and groups.

Workshops and residencies are relevant to all levels, from infant to HE. We offer culturally enriching experiences which are delivered by our passionate and creative artists.


Our aim is to nurture every child’s creativity and improve their functional fitness.

Our multi-faceted workshops deliver high-quality, measurable results which align with the National Curriculum and specific in-school projects.All activity takes inspiration from Kathak traditions and western dance techniques, nurturing an effective and respectful learning environment, and encouraging curiosity, creativity, risk-taking, self-discipline and collaboration. We study the physical body, artistic movement and the intrinsic relationship between music and Kathak dance. We can create a package for you inspired by our wide range of professional repertoire.
