The Speaking Dancer is a unique and outstanding professional development programme that supports the artist as performer and devisor/choreographer. SDIPT offers students coming from a professional and or performing arts degree background the opportunity to rethink their relationship to their practice, and develop new processes and skills. The programme consists of four modules taken over intensive weekend workshops with an exceptional faculty of tutors.

 “Taking this programme has been absolutely pivotal to my development as a performing artist. I feel like I have found my niche! Dance Research Studio is a unique environment and offers something so different to anything I have experienced at university or in other performance courses.” SDIPT student
