Formed in 1994, Richard Alston Dance Company has undoubtedly been one of the most important companies in British Dance Theatre for the past quarter of a century. A cornerstone of both GCSE and A-level dance syllabi, the company is not only a household name but, crucially, many young dancers' first taste of contemporary dance.
CUDS were therefore honoured to host Emma Gogan from RADC for a three-hour intermediate level workshop on Sunday 1st March. Offering a unique insight into this foundational company, Emma led a brilliant technique class, followed by learning company repertoire and creating a short piece from participants' creative work. As the company visited Cambridge as part of their FINAL EDITION tour, this was a truly special opportunity to learn from the world-renowned company before it closes later this year, and the perfect way to end our 2019/20 workshop series.
Keep an eye out on our events page, where we will be releasing our workshop calendar for Autumn 2020 over the summer vacation!
