Creative Learning

Creative Learning

Learning is at the heart of all Scottish Dance Theatre's activity. 
Our 2019 guide is now available!

The extensive strategic work is distilled into three strands:

For Audiences
The company connects to audiences through current performance work, offering insight into the creative collaborative process via Meet The Creatives events, Open Technical Rehearsals, Pre and Post Show Discussions, Open Studio and Inside Scottish Dance Theatre. CLPL is delivered for colleagues in Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Education contributes to the development of dance as a discrete art form and in cross fertilisation with other disciplines.

Through Audience Engagement we aim:
to develop rich engagement opportunities to deepen knowledge and interest in our work
to work with key strategic partners to maximise resources
to offer audiences a range of opportunities to engage with us and ensure increased access for all
to work with community partners including Dundee Dance Partnership to engage a broad audience
to create opportunities that break down barriers to access

For Communities
Rooted in the city of Dundee and with an international performance schedule, bespoke projects addressing specific artistic enquiry give audiences and participants access to the resources of the company at home and on tour. Scottish Dance Theatre works closely with fellow arts and community organisations to contribute to the rich offer of arts activity in Dundee through Dundee Dance Partnership and other networks.

Through Community Engagement we aim:
to build on the legacy of Glasgow 2014 under 5s work by developing an early years programme, including specialist training
to build on the successes of Get Scotland Dancing and offer participatory events for non specialists to develop rich engagement opportunities to deepen knowledge and interest in our work
to work with key strategic partners to maximise resources
to create opportunities that break down barriers to access 

Taking Part
