Company Workshops

Our workshops for all ages and abilities focus on working with improvisation and creating original and meaningful movement vocabulary, inspired by Protein’s body of work. Tailored content matches the needs of the participants and/or organisations using:

• Creative practice and choreography
• Voice and text in dance
• Protein’s repertoire
• Contemporary and contact techniques
• Community dance practice
• Outdoor and site-responsive choreography
• Support with auditions
• A combination of any of these aspects of our work

Company workshops can also support Arts Award accreditation and Artsmark.
Protein is committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. All teachers have undergone an enhanced DBS check.

Primary Schools

Dance is great for getting pupils active and healthy and is a compulsory part of the PE curriculum at Key Stage 1 and 2. Primary schools can use their PE & Sport Premium funding to bring Protein dance specialists in to deliver workshops to expand and deepen the delivery of existing core P.E sessions. Workshops are tailored around schools needs and schedule.
Explore learning and creativity through books and dance with Protein’s workshop inspired by The Little Prince, providing children with fun activities to enhance their enjoyment of literature!

Secondary Schools

Protein delivers creative workshops that combine text and movement, contact work and technical skills. Whether your students are working towards a GCSE qualification or you’re simply looking for enrichment/extra-curricular activities, Protein can provide exciting opportunities for students to learn from a professional dance theatre company through company workshops and projects.

Post 16

Protein can work closely with colleges and sixth forms, to deliver workshops tailored to their specific needs and requirements to create rewarding outcomes for pupils and teachers.

Vocational Training

Protein’s unique form of dance theatre, combining text and movement in a unified and seamless way, along with the demands of contemporary dance technique, means Protein dance artists are ideally placed to support the development of dancers, choreographers and theatre artists in training.

Touring workshops

As Protein tour shows around the world, we offer open workshops where participants can learn more about the repertoire themes and characters.


Protein enjoy taking dance deep into communities running workshops in libraries, community centres, hospitals and at local festivals. We can tailor these sessions for the environment, support partners achieve particular outcomes and help develop audiences for contemporary dance. We are particularly interested in reaching out in our home borough of Greenwich, London and welcome conversations with new partners.
