My own personal aim with our education work is to offer the same chance that was offered to me. An opportunity to explore movement and spark something deep within our students that has developed into my passion in life
— Jack Stinton

Below is an outline of the work that we currently offer through the company. For more detailed information and to discuss what we can offer you please contact Jack at jack@jackstintondancecompany.com

  • OutReach Education - This program is where we offer any number of classes and any number of styles to your school. These sessions can be after or before school. Within schools we currently offer Contemporary, Street and Ballet classes. We are able to offer many other classes including Yoga, Jazz, Hip Hop, Ball Room, Commercial and Musical Theatre; other styles are always being added as our team of teachers is always expanding. 

  • Primary Education - Recent schools include Thorndown, Over and Willingham. These projects can range in time and length and can deliver a variety of content. Recent projects include World War 2, Chocolate and Egypt. Within these projects we offer a warm up, which improves technique and stamina; a section of choreographed material created by Jack and a chance to create and develop their own dance routines, helping improve creativity and offering a chance for the students to explore topics in a different fashion. We also offer projects to help develop primary school teachers confidence in teaching dance. We do this by providing full lesson plans which cover everything that is taught, as the teachers watch and take part in sessions they are asked to have a more active role and in the final session is led by the class tutor. Feedback is then provided to help develop and improve teachers confidence within teaching dance. Along with this we are also able to offer the ARTS AWARD scheme please download the pack for more details. Full lesson plans and feedback are provided at the end of the project, but must be requested before the start of the project.

  • Secondary, 6th form and University Education - Recent secondary and 6th form schools include Caister Academy, Stour Valley Community School, Swavesey Village College and Impington Village College. These projects included technique and creative improvisation sessions and creating a piece for BTEC assessments. The technique classes are focused on contemporary technique, looking mainly at Cunningham, Graham and Release. The creative sessions are built to improve confidence in improvisation, solo creation and group created work, helping develop and improve the students ability to create more diverse work. Performance pieces are able to be created on a stimulus provided by the school or by JSDC. Along with this we are also able to offer the ARTS AWARD scheme please download the pack for more details. Full lesson plans are provided after the project is complete.

  • Special Commissions - Recent groups include Scambs and Cambridge Contemporary Dance. Specially commissioned works can range from youth group works, working over several weekends to create a performance piece for a special one off youth platform or performance, to semi professional companies running regular technique classes and auditions, to creating full length works for the company.
