Education and Workshop

New Art Club’s artistic directors Tom and Pete have both been teaching dance and theatre practice in varied contexts for over 20 years.

Their work emphasises creativity and exploration of ideas through inspiring and fun tasks that are tailored for the particular needs of the group and/or individual. They believe strongly that engaging creatively in dance is of great intrinsic benefit for all people whatever their age or level of experience.
