What we did or are doing

Resonate is devised and co-ordinated through LoopEd, Loop Dance Company's education and outreach programme. Resonate will bring contemporary dance artists and new dance participants together. The schools are co-commissioning the new works to be performed by pupils and have exclusive access to Loop Dance Company's creative and performance processes. The residencies will be tailored to each school and include a package of open-access days to one of the choreographic processes, intensive rep, fitness testing, polymeric training and creative rehearsals led by Loop company members and a curtain-raiser performance at the local venue.
