On Friday 22nd May Manchester Metropolitan University's Dance Team will be sharing the very best of their creative work from student and staff at the Cheshire campus in Crewe. The day includes two concerts of new dance work from single honours, combined honours and postgraduate programmes, guests from the local dance community, graduates working in the industry and lecturers from the dance team. Running alongside this will be an exhibition in Axis OpenSpace of their distinctive screendance work.
A key part of the event will be a public, round-table discussion (5-6.30pm) focusing on the relationship between the Dance profession and Dance in Higher Education which will give space for graduates to ask invited professionals/academics from the region about their experience of working in both, or transitioning from one to another.
