My London is a two-year project with young people.

We are exploring how dance can enable young people to take part in social action. There are lots of opportunities for young people to get involved.

The next phase of our My London: Dance & Social Action Project is:

Join Trinity Laban for a FREE Autumn project to co-design and lead a dance workshop

Aged 13-18 years and interested in learning how to design and lead a dance workshop for other young dancers?

Join us to co-create, plan and co-lead a workshop that enables other young people to experience dance about social issues that matter to you.

With Dance Artist Christopher Owen, you will work with a small group of other young dancers to co-design and create a dance session. You will work in dance styles that excite you, such as contemporary, hip-hop, physical theatre or folk dance. Chris will support you to discover and refine ways of physicalising your movement ideas through a series of creative tasks, set phrases and improvisation. Social issues must be at the heart / centre of your workshop content. Together you will decide, shape and structure the workshop content and be supported to deliver this to other young dancers.

You will lead the workshop for participants of the My London Youth Summit on 15 November and Trinity Laban’s Youth Dance Day 26 November.
