Join Artistic Director of Stopgap Dance Company, Lucy Bennett, for a short session that will stir up career ambitions that are personal and relevant to you. There will be a chance to dream, to discuss and gain practical tips for navigating the dance industry in order to realise your ambitions.
Lucy Bennett has been immersed in Stopgap’s work since 2003, and during that time has learnt to blend and expand the dynamic interaction of distinctly different dancers. Working as a choreographer within a company of markedly diverse dancers has allowed Lucy to develop, define and encapsulate her love for expressing human stories through dance.
Stopgap creates dance theatre productions for both indoor and outdoor touring and under Lucy’s direction the company has toured its original inclusive dance productions around the world.
Stopgap’s production Artificial Things (Scene three) is one of six works of compulsory study for GCSE Dance. The full-length production was recently reimagined into an award winning short film collaboration with the film director Sophie Fiennes.
