Dance Create Evolve with Amanda Pooley Brand. Amanda will take you through a journey of dance in which you will improve your technique, deepen your musicality and learn a new choreography that you can make your own.

In the afternoon, you will learn a fun choreography that allows you to explore your new level of understanding of Middle Eastern dance and music. The workshop will be accessible to students with all levels of dance experience, providing something for everyone from the novice to the experienced dancer. Lunch and afternoon tea are included. 10.30am to 4.30pm.
