2015 Outreach

2015 Outreach

In addition to presenting new works, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Contemporary Dance Series includes an Education Programme with introductory talks, contemporary dance workshops, open rehearsals, performances and meet-the-artist sessions to promote contemporary dance to high schools. This programme aims to offer students an opportunity to understand the creative process of choreography and learn how to appreciate contemporary dance. In 2013, the Hong Kong Arts Festival also published “Creative Records and Education Programme: Contemporary Dance Appreciation Education Kit”, including a booklet and a DVD to promote contemporary dance in the community and in schools.
