The Mark Bruce Summer School is an intensive week’s residency held in Frome, Somerset where the company has been based for the last 12 years. It is open to a small group of selected students from vocational schools and recent graduates, (16+, national and international), who are interested in the company and its work. The Summer School provides an opportunity to work in a creative environment with company dancers, learn a wide range of repertoire including pas de deux work and participate in contemporary and ballet technique classes every day. The week culminates with an informal showing for an invited audience. It is a technically challenging week, pushing students out of their comfort zones and providing an extension to their studies in the vocational schools.
