Elmhurst School for Dance Choreography Project

Elmhurst wishes to provide our students with the opportunity to work with established dance choreographers who are versed in alternative styles to classical ballet. Students and choreographers will work together to create, develop, practice and publically perform new and unique dance repertoire.

This project will allow Elmhurst students to expand their professional experience by working with unfamiliar choreographers with new ideas and help them to develop their employability as professional dancers. It will also aim to endow Elmhurst with new and unique dance repertoire to be performed in our annual Summer Shows and other public events. The project will extend our students' performance opportunitities, while raising the public and dance-sector profile of the School and our students.


Working with unfamiliar choreographers will introduce new dance styles to Elmhurst students, teach them to collaborate creatively and develop performance ideas together. This will also encourage them to learn to work with unfamiliar dance professionals, who may also offer them future employment opportunities. By raising the School's profile, this project will also help Elmhurst attract the best dance students from around the world, which will further support employability via peer encouragement.
