At The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, we want to produce technically-strong, versatile dancers through training that is responsive to the trends and demands of professional dance. We provide the technique, creativity, understanding and professional awareness to sustain a career as a professional. Classes cover a broad range of dance styles and complementary skills to make you an employable performer and ensure that our graduates go on to perform worldwide. We want to ensure you are as fit and healthy as possible throughout your career. At the start of your time with us, we will give you a physical diagnostic. We assess your body, its strengths and weaknesses. You then learn how to apply this knowledge to your training to prevent injury, while making weak areas stronger. We give you specific critique and guidance in your development, and offer the experience of being part of a company. You collaborate with students from other courses, giving you invaluable insight into the creative process from other perspectives and realities.
