Boys Dance Workshops
Over the last decade of producing pantomimes in Sevenoaks, we’ve noticed a distinct lack of boys auditioning to dance in our shows. A few years ago we had to take the decision to run auditions for younger age groups as ‘girls only’ because so few young male dancers were trying out for a spot.
Coming now into our second decade at the Stag, we would like to try and change that.
In the Autumn of this year, we’ll be inviting primary schools and dance schools to work with us to run a boys dance project, offering our choreographer, Daisy Dean, and dance captain, Patrick Rosinha, to local primary schools for a week of free dance workshops aimed specifically at boys.
Following this, we will invite all those boys who enjoy the initial session, to come to a second free workshop at the Stag Theatre, to further explore their interest in dance.
Over the sessions, we hope to ignite an interest in dance training in a group of boys who we can then introduce to local dance schools, so they can try out more formal classes.
If you work in a primary school, or run a dance school, in the Sevenoaks area and would like to to take part, please do get in touch.
The week of schools workshops will run from 18-22 November
The workshop at the Stag will be on Sunday 24 November from 10am-1pm, and will be open to any boys aged 9-13yrs, free of charge.
