Dance Class: Far from the Norm - Nov 04th

Dance Class with Far from the Norm

November 04th @ 7.30-9pm

Studio 2


Far From The Norm is the cornerstone of the hip hop community in the UK and is a critically and publicly renowned dance theatre company, led by Artistic Director Botis Seva.

Original, vital and fearless, Far From The Norm has carved a reputation as a highly skilled and experimental hip hop collective. Their burning scrutiny of public preoccupations, politics and the contemporary world fuels their work and demands a response.

We strive to make our work collaboratively and to continuously reinvent and discover new ways of deconstructing different hip hop and street dance vocabularies. We aim to impact a wide range of audiences, challenging their perceptions of hip hop as an art form and the narrative we are channelling, but we also aim to empower marginalised young people, by reflecting back that theatre is a space for them too.
