We can offer anything from a two-hour session to a week-long residency. Workshops are usually led by two of the company’s artists working together, but other options are possible. Workshops and residencies can be stand-alone events, or can be part of a community outreach programme developed in tandem with our shows Happy Feet and Bridges y Puentes, or with a Ragroof Tea Dance.


The company have, over the past year, delivered workshops to: University of Brighton, Basement Arts Centre, Rose Bruford Drama School, Alnwick Garden Northumberland, Chelsea Theatre, South Downs College Lewes, City College Brighton and Hove, Winter Garden Eastbourne, Shoreham Academy, and Blind Veterans UK, amongst many others.


Individual company members have also travelled abroad in recent months to deliver workshops in Brazil, Italy, and Zimbabwe.
