Six Dance Collective’s 2024 Summer Dance Lab comes to the MAC this August. This intensive follows last year’s successful production of White Doves, which saw 28 aspiring dancers take to the stage side-by-side with international dancers in a new ballet, alongside several recent worshops. 

For this year’s intensive, we aim to provide dancers with the opportunity to learn from established dancers working in ballet and contemporary dance for an intensive and fun week of masterclasses to push technique and performance skills. Five artists will join SDC Artistic Director and White Doves choreographer Ruaidhri Maguire. We are excited to announce the 2024 faculty of teachers soon.

Masterclasses will include:

  • Vaganova technique and learning solos from the classical ballet repertoire
  • Contemporary dance technique and performance skills, including floor work
  • Exploring modern ballet choreography for SDC's next youth production
  • Acting through movement

Who is it for?
