Educational Outreach is a key feature of the Company with exhilarating tailored workshops offered nationwide to secondary and primary schools, as well as to youth and community building organisations.  Dance POP (Dance Outreach Performance Programme) reaches thousands of participants each year.  Our latest programme, Nature Moves, is a new educational programme for young people to experience Nature, Creativity and Dance.
