Surface Area Dance Theatre as a company is committed to mentoring and peer learning opportunities, our objectives are achieved by developing a comprehensive educational program which fosters the training of dance as a profession.
By offering hands on experiences that enables mentees to work with the company in an inclusive and experimental way. We place special emphasis on looking at life skill, self awareness, self confidence and group participation, each company mentee is encouraged to enjoy an experience of their own success by “doing”.
Surface Area Dance Theatre would like to thank Northern Cultural Skills Partnership, Making It and Newcastle City Council for their ongoing support.
