Education

We would like to reach people across ages and backgrounds to enable them to enjoy the freedom, pleasure and confidence of being creative.

Schools and community projects:

LaNua Youth Dance Group

LaNua is offering young people a special opportunity to join our Youth Dance Group in Leith/Portobello area. Participants will learn to dance and devise ideas for new choreography. Young people will develop performance skills and be given information on understanding of dance as career.

Workshops start in May 2013 with public performance at Calton Centre in June 2013. Please sign up in advance!

This project is supported by Cashback for Communities and The Robertson Trust.

‘Our Space – Our Dance’

This project aims to inspire and stimulate participants’ creativity through creative movement and physical explorations. This project investigates themes of self expression and the relationship between people and the environment in which they live. The workshops develop sensory awareness, and group awareness as well as engagement in self expression and explorations of the themes. The workshops can include multidisciplinary methods such as – authentic drawing and writing, live music and film. Themes that are explored: the environment in which we spend our day, what makes those places special for us, how we can encourage positive change.

‘Enso’

We offer variety of workshops and lecture-demonstration packages for schools inspired by our enso performance.

Enso performance and workshops offer a variety of stimulating experiences and contexts explored through active engagement and multi disciplinary activities.

The project will allow children to be physically active, increase knowledge, be inspired and explore in depth: another culture – its art and philosophy, relate to the environment – natural and man made, learn about and participate in different art forms – dance, poetry, landscaping, calligraphy, minimalism.
