Current Partnerships and Projects
The BRIT School
In 2022, HSC and BRIT School officially launched their partnership, committing to work together to widen access to professional careers in dance through alternative pathways and training. The partnership was celebrated with a large-scale re-staging of Hofesh Shechter’s Political Mother, featuring 75 BRIT students and marking BRIT’s 30th anniversary.
Northern School of Contemporary Dance
HSC and NSCD launched a long-term partnership in 2021, to increase equal opportunities, diversity, and progression pathways into the dance sector. Read our joint press release here:
Academy of Theatre & Dance, Amsterdam
This relationship had its genesis some years ago with a restaging project and has grown organically over the years, seeing 6 students from the academy now coming through the ranks of Shechter II. A focus on decolonisation of the curriculum, and student-centred learning, aligns with HSC’s drive and focus.
HSC will work with Dance East over the coming years to engage with their local communities, and to create a Dance Hub for our apprentice company, Shechter II. More news to come. Further information on Dance East here:
