Essence Dance Company is a contemporary youth dance group for 11-18 year olds. It is audition only, and for our older students who have been with the school for at least 2 years. It started as an experimental group with secondary school children who wanted to continue their dance training outside of school hours.

Since it started in 2009, students have performed at The London School of Communication, The Maidstone International Arts Festival, The HSSP Schools Dance Festival, U:Dance and at All England Dance qualifying competitions. The group consists of 10-12 dancers, who work closely with the choreographers to produce innovative and exciting new work. Our works include; The Lost Alice (2015), Aspects of War (2016), Time and Experience (2017), Masquerade (2018) and From the Inside Out (2018).

In September 2018, we launched Essence Junior Company for children aged 8-11yrs. We aim to train these young people in contemporary dance, in order to provide performance opportunities, competitive festivals and eventually progress into our senior company.
