As part of Protein’s commitment to enriching lives through dance, we offer a range of opportunities to support dance artists in the early stages of their careers.
Over the last 15 years, Protein has built an international profile for exciting and inclusive dance experiences in different community settings, working with people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Community Dance Practice workshops are a professional development opportunity for dance practitioners who are interested in entering or developing their thinking and skills in community dance practice. Workshops include practical and reflective work, and allow space for sharing and debate around dance-making and community practice.
Luca and Protein also mentor through One Dance UK’s Dance Teaching Mentoring programme.
In action: CPD at gDA
In summer 2013, Luca delivered a two-day Community Dance Practice workshop at Greenwich Dance to dance professionals based in London, sharing his experience of working on intergenerational projects and on tailoring approaches to working with a variety of community groups.
"Very personal and supportive environment. I felt safe to share and explore. Lovely atmosphere!"
"Great workshop! Lots of great skills for working with different groups."
"It was reaffirming and encouraging."
"Gaining an insight into Luca's processes and practices...the chance to discuss, experiment with and refine elements of our own [were the parts of the session I enjoyed most]."
