2018 Outreach

2018 Outreach

CDS creates opportunities for young choreographers in the city to realise their talent, while also nurturing the appreciation of contemporary dance among a growing number of young students. Every year, the HKAF team curates a CDS educational outreach programme; led by professional teachers of contemporary dance they tour across Hong Kong schools, particularly those in remote districts. Through school exhibitions, guided talks, contemporary dance workshops, open rehearsals and official performances, as well as pre/post-performance guided appreciation sessions, CDS introduces students to the performing arts and helps them to experience the power of contemporary dance. The number of student participants exceeds 5,000 each year; it is these students who will make up the audiences or become the creators of contemporary dance in the future.
