3. What facilities are required?

  • We can also facilitate online workshops over Zoom

4. What do the participants need?

  • Participants should wear appropriate clothing for the workshop such as tracksuit bottoms, shorts, sportswear etc - no skirts or jeans, no jewellery to be worn during the session
  • Depending on the type of the floor in your space, where appropriate and safe, the dance artists will ask the group to participate in bare feet

5. How are Health & Safety and Safeguarding dealt with at the workshop?

  • Your organisation is responsible for health and safety, first aid and behaviour management
  • A member of staff/representative must be present at all times
  • There must be a designated First Aider on site, we will need you to provide details in advance
  • We will also ask you to provide details of your Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • New Adventures holds Public Liability Insurance of £10 million.  We are happy to provide a copy of our policy document
  • All New Adventures dance artists have had an enhanced DBS check within 3 years.  You must let us know in advance if the dance artists are required to bring their DBS certificates with them to your school/setting

6. What is the maximum group size?

We teach a maximum of 30 participants in one workshop

7. Can I take photos of the workshop?

Photos must not be taken without the prior consent of New Adventures and permission must be obtained from all participants.

8. Can the workshop be tailored to create choreography for exams or shows? 

Our workshops are designed to introduce and immerse participants in the style and language of New Adventures and cannot be used to create anything that will go towards an examination or show. Within the workshop, we always explore creative tasks that the company use, which of course will add to the dancer’s and teacher’s toolbox when creating their own work.
