Why LCDS? Why London?

London Contemporary Dance School offers highly intensive training with studio-based classes, enhanced by a range of contextual studies that directly relate to the experience of performing, making, researching and understanding dance. During your time at the school, you will learn from leading dance practitioners, be exposed to creative and authentic dance techniques, choreograph, perform and be fully immersed in the life as a dance student at a leading dance university in the United Kingdom.

The programme offers you the unique LCDS experience, giving you the chance to learn dance techniques such as Flying Low, Passing Through, Gaga and Contact Improvisation, along with more traditional dance styles like Cunningham Based Technique and Ballet.

All classes are housed in our Central London location, The Place, in state-of-the-art studios. Sitting at the heart of London, you will be stone throws away from over 230 professional theatres and over 250 art institutions that London offers. You are also a five-minute walk away from the Eurostar, with Paris and Brussels only taking two hours to get to, the European dance scene will be at your fingertips.
