Artistic Director Laura Vanhulle is an experienced dance facilitator and teacher, having taught both independently nationwide and for organisations such as DanceXchange and ACE dance and music.

Mickael Marso Rivière is based in France, but whenever feasible he will also be involved in the education outreach on tour. As this is Vanhulle Dance Theatre's first major tour, we are keen to work closely with venues to develop audiences.

The work is well suited for young people in its themes and style, and the company would welcome the opportunity to share their vision of collaboration with young adults, encouraging them to be as open as possible towards each other and other cultures/styles of dance.

Vanhulle Dance Theatre can offer:

• Curtain raiser and workshop opportunities for both dance groups and community groups. Prices start at £120 for a 1 hr taster workshop.
• Placements for young people and dance students to come and spend time with the company. This can apply to local professionals as well.
• Company class throughout January 2015 (Wolverhampton).
• Open rehearsals and chance to chat with the artists.
• Mentoring for younger dance artists/composers/filmmakers.
• For tour venues: we are also open to ideas and existing venue initiatives - please let us know how we can work with you and support your ongoing audience development work.

"Laura Vanhulle, is a fantastic dance teacher, facilitator and performer. She is able to encourage and push both adults and young people to fulfil their potential in a very positive way. Laura is energetic, hard working, punctual, and a pleasure to work with." Kirsten Jeavons, Programme Manager, DanceXchange
