Déda, the Derby-based centre for dance, movement and creativity, has launched a new series of in-person education and training programmes.

Called the Déda Campus, its aim is to help dance artists and young people learn more about dance and upskill themselves.

For those aged over 18, an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training course, which starts on 10 July, has been developed to deepen their practice and provide an alternative income source for freelancers.

Choreo-Lounge is another new initiative launched by Déda, which aims to re-connect with dance artists and support them to create new work through a choreography and professional development course.

The two-week programme in August enables dance artists to work individually and as part of a group exploring new choreography.

Finally, young people interested in studying GCSE Dance are invited to a taster workshop on 2 July.

All of these initiatives compliment the cornerstone of the Déda Campus – the MA in Dance and Choreography – which was launched in partnership with University of Derby in 2021 and is currently recruiting for the second cohort, due to start in September.

Clare Limb, head of dance development and learning, said: “Déda has long been recognised for our outstanding contribution in the field of dance development and learning, which has obviously been severely impacted during the pandemic.

“In person collaborations, performance and professional development has not been possible for so long and we are keen to do what we can to support young people and artists at various stages of their careers with high quality learning and skills experiences led by nationally renowned leaders in their field.”
