Dancing in ‘Dam

Teesside University Dance

By Teesside University Dance student Jessica Gibbs

Teesside University DanceOn the 3rd of November, the student company Diverse@tees from the BA dance degree at Teesside University had the amazing experience of travelling to Amsterdam with senior lecturer Jennifer Essex. It was a great experience that gave the students a glimpse of what it is like to be a professional dance artist.

They had the incredible chance to see the premier of ‘Humpback Runner’ at Zuiderstrandtheater, choreographed by Jiří Pokorný’s and performed by Nederlands Dans Theater. Then to further their knowledge they were privileged to take part in a modern jazz class by Erick Bacon and an afro-fusion class with Avalon Brown.

An amazing trip that allowed me to see the dance sector in a whole new environment and experience the culture of Amsterdam.’ -Stacey Thompson (Member of Diverse@tees)
