Thu 2 July 2020

Lewis Sharp has been accepted into Sir Matthew Bourne OBE’s 20/21 cohort of emerging dance teachers and community dance artists.

Following in the footsteps of TL alum and Honorary Fellow Sir Matthew Bourne OBE, London-born Lewis completed his BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance in 2019 before joining the Conservatoire’s flagship graduate dance company Transitions.

Now Lewis is one of 16 talented community artists to join Bourne’s professional development programme Overture, which is part of the award-winning dance-theatre company New Adventures.

Over the course of nine months Lewis will benefit from digital sessions and practical workshops designed to develop a range of professional skills that will support the next level of his career.

He will also work with inspirational guest teachers from a variety of dance backgrounds who will share their practice.

Lewis comments –

“The training I have received at Trinity Laban has allowed me to gain valuable skills and knowledge to support my career as a dance artist.

I have always admired the work that New Adventures do and am excited to be a part of this year’s Overture cohort.”

Lewis will join former classmate and TL Alum Patrick Webster in the Overture 20/21 cohort.
