CCDC launched this three-year “Jockey Club Contemporary Dance Literacy and Learning Project” funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust in September 2018 to give Hong Kong primary and secondary school students their first encounter with contemporary dance. Through an innovative programme of school tour performances, guided appreciation and experiential workshops, the project lays the groundwork for developing interest and appreciation for the arts. This project targets all eligible primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong.
The project includes:
- “Dance out of the Box 2.0” Contemporary Dance School Tour (your choice of in-person performance at school, or online interactive live performance through Zoom)
- Guided Appreciation of Professional Contemporary Dance Production
- Contemporary Dance Workshops
