The Peter Darrell Choreography Evening

The Choreography Evening, an annual event for students of the Dance School of Scotland, took place on Friday 15 December 2017. The main focus of the evening was choreography, with their education classes looking at choreographers of different styles.

The funding by the Peter Darrell Trust will enable choreographic tuition and workshops by visiting teachers. The Dance School will add into the Dance Education a module on Peter Darrell and his works, teaching parts of some of his works giving the students the opportunity to create their own versions.

Along with the excerpts from Peter Darrell's Five Ruckert Songs and Beauty and the Beast the students created their own works - images of a few of these are shown here. For further information about the Peter Darrell Choreography Evening and the work and achievements of the Dance School of Scotland please visit their website.

The trustees of The Peter Darrell Trust were pleased to support this project which introduces new generations of dance students to the work of Peter Darrell and gives students the opportunity to further develop their own interest in choreography. Throughout his career, Peter was keen to support and encourage emerging choreographic talent within his dancers and peer group.
