Neon Dance aim to inspire, engage and educate through dance. Neon Dance workshops consists of a contemporary based technique class, repertoire from the company’s latest production Empathy and a creative session inspired by the work. Workshops can range from 2 hours to a whole day and we cater for all ages and abilities.


Neon Dance specialise in week-long dance and film residencies, which include a daily contemporary based technique class followed by the creation of a new work. Participants are given creative tools and tasks as well as set choreography throughout the week. The content generated is then shaped into an original dance work for the stage (and/or) screen.
