Round & About

This month Wimbledon, next year the West End and the world…
Dance Overture is London Studio Centre’s annual end-of-year production, showcasing the varied and exciting talents of first and second-year students.

Overflowing with energy, this month offers dance-lovers the chance to see household names of the future…
in spectacular form, between Friday 13th and Sunday 15th July Wimbledon’s New Theatre will host an exuberant display of jazz, ballet, contemporary dance and musical theatre. This exciting production was developed and rehearsed in just five weeks and showcases the diverse range of skills students have studied through a challenging year of technical training, rigorous assessment and rewarding academic exploration honed by leading and emerging choreographers.

London Studio Centre is keen to support former students in their careers, and some of the pieces in the production have been created by alumni who have established themselves in the field of choreography. Now they have a chance to work with those who are following in their footsteps.

However, this is by no means the only route people have taken once graduating. The London Dance Centre is 40 years old. It was founded by Bridget Espinosa and offers a comprehensive programme for students who are dedicated in the pursuit of excellence in all facets of musical theatre. The course offers a broad and versatile training and offers students the chance to specialise in classical ballet, contemporary dance, jazz dance and musical theatre. Aspects of all these genres will be showcased in the performances.

Studio Centre alumni have joined many of the leading companies such as Rambert Dance Company, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, English National Ballet, Royal Ballet, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Stomp, ZooNation, Spirit of the Dance, JazzXchange, Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre. They have also appeared in many Broadway and West End Shows such as Hamilton, Wicked, Matilda and Cats.

This will be an inspiring show for future young dancers as they have a chance to see students from a centre which is at the cutting edge of creative development. For further information and tickets, please visit www.atgtickets.com
