Our new Contemporary Dance Company will be one of Stage & the City’s elite resident dance companies. The Company will perform in showcases, performances, private and public bookings and more, with weekly rehearsals in its beautiful Kings Cross dance studios.

Dancers in the company will be taught intensive, challenging but enjoyable choreography. The company very much has a ‘family’ feel so you will be building confidence and making new friends at the same time!

Aside from weekly rehearsals, the extra-curricular performances, bookings etc will not be compulsory, although we encourage Company members to take part in as many as possible.
