Summer at Rambert

by Benoit Swan Pouffer

A series of workshops, classes and public performances curated by Rambert's Guest Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer

Summer at Rambert is designed to inspire your creativity, to push your physicality to the max and to be coached by some of the most cutting-edge artists working in the dance world today.

There are three separate strands on offer:

Summer Residency, an opportunity for young, professionally training dancers to gain performance experience at a professional level, working with our guest artists to create a public installation performance using the entire Rambert building as a stage.

Adult Intensive, a series of intermediate-level morning workshops, taking place over one or two weeks.

Youth Courses, a series of inspiring courses across three different age groups, for young dancers aged 8-17 to create, play and improve technique.
