For over 30 years Shawbrook's week-long residential dance courses have been honing students’ skills in ballet, jazz, aerial and contemporary choreography and performance.

Shawbrook tutors are professionals in the world of dance both at home and abroad.

Thursday Choreography Nights are a huge part of the week for young dancers.
