Dance Photography Workshops
Are you starting out in dance photography, or are you already working in dance photography and seeking to gain more skills? As part of our last festival, Showtime, Cloud Dance Festival offered 10 people per day the opportunity to learn more about dance photography, gain experience and develop their skills through three one-day masterclasses, while learning from one of the top dance photographers in the UK.
Each day, we held an all-day masterclass, starting with a session with leading dance photographer James Rowbotham, and followed by tech rehearsals of up to seven contemporary dance works which were supervised by Cathy Martin, a professional dance photographer, for 1-to-1 guidance and tuition. There was also an additional workshop on location-based dance photography on the Sunday afternoon - learn how to take Jordan Matter-style photos!

Dance Writing Workshops
Are you starting out in dance writing, or are you already involved in dance writing and seeking to gain more skills, or would you simply like the opportunity to discuss dance writing with your peers, while having your work published?
As part of our last festival, Showtime, Cloud Dance Festival offered 10 IdeasTap members per day a half-day masterclass on dance writing, led by A Younger Theatre's Managing Editor Eleanor Turney, followed by an evening mixed-bill performance which you will be reviewing. The submitted reviews have been published on Cloud Dance Festival's website, and we also aimed to hold a post-festival writing workshop for you to gain feedback on your review, and to discuss the show with other participation IdeasTap members.
The masterclass was suitable for all levels of experience, from new writers to established dance writers.
The writing masterclasses were being run by Cloud Dance Festival in partnership with English National Ballet and A Younger Theatre.
