Professional Development & ZooNation Youth Company performances
ZooNation offer CPD (continued professional development) opportunities for artists and teachers who want to improve and diversify their skills. Working with varied partners over the years, we have developed a specific programme of work aimed for mainstream P.E. teachers to enable and equip them with the tools to deliver dance within that remit.
This programme can be delivered over 1 or 2 days, and is open to teachers with all levels of dance background.
We can also offer CPD sessions to dance teachers who wish to improve their development and understanding on how ZooNation create work and deliver workshops.
Prices – from £250 per day* (3 hour session)
ZooNation Youth Company performances
ZooNation Youth Company was founded in 2006 and comprises some of the best young hip-hoppers in the UK with dancers from across the country. As a resident company at London’s Southbank Centre, their work has varied greatly over the years including invitations to perform for the International Olympics Committee at the Royal Opera House (heads of state, opening ceremony, London Olympics 2012), performing at the Dance Proms, at the Royal Albert Hall and at the New Year’s Day Parade to name a few.
As well as this ZooNation Youth Company has been commissioned to create two original pieces of work, Groove on Down the Road and Tales of the Turntable, both of which received 4* reviews and played to sell out audiences at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London and have been remounted around the country including performances at The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, Wales Millennium Centre and Birmingham Hippodrome.
We can offer excerpts of any of ZYC’s repertoire, or the creation of a bespoke piece, to be performed at a variety of events leaving your audiences inspired and excited.
