The Graduation Performances run from Friday 3 – Friday 10 July and are the culmination of three years intensive dance education. Four new full length works have been specially commissioned by the School from international choreographers Shay Kuebler, Kerry Nicholls, Renaud Wiser, and Igor and Moreno. Each night will be a different mixed bill, with two commissioned works alongside the very best student choreography. There are three dates (Tue 7, Thu 9 & Fri 10 Jul ) when you can see all four of the commissioned works.
