Central hosts annual Choreography Platform

Calendar Posted 21 May 2019

On Friday, Central held our annual Choreography Platform. The event is an opportunity for students studying on the degree programme to present choreographic ideas and work within a safe and informal setting. Now in its eighth year, it continues to showcase the creative skills of the students.

The works presented can be finished, rehearsed and ready for performance, but can equally be snap-shots of ideas that students want to trial before leading onto more accomplished pieces.

Leanne King, Central’s Creative Projects Manager who runs the event said “This year the standard of work produced was at its highest yet. The confidence shown by our students in playing with ideas has increased considerably. They were all able to talk openly about their ideas and present these personal works with confidence.”

Choreography is a core part of the training Central offers with students participating in weekly classes. Exploring the choreographic process enables students to develop another creative voice, allowing them to experiment with ideas of their own and others. The Choreography Platform is one of several creative projects Leanne King leads which serve as forums for Central students to collaborate with each other and artists from other disciplines, enabling them to develop skills in collaboration, project management and leadership. Other projects include Design for Dance (an annual collaboration with Central Saint Martins students) and the Virtual Conservatoire.
