Learn new skills in lockdown with LEAP Remote Tutorials

Throughout the month of June while our Learning, Education and Participation (LEAP) team have been furloughed, we'll be sharing some tutorials that they, and some of our freelance practitioners, have recorded for us in advance. From dance to puppetry, BSL to writing, we hope these online tutorials will give you a chance to try something new and flex your creative muscles while the Theatre is closed. We'll be posting new videos every week to a playlist on our YouTube channel.

The first batch of videos are now available and include a tutorial for making a simple Paper Puppet from freelance puppeteer Darcy Collins, an introduction to the British Sign Language alphabet from our Senior Community and Outreach Manager Louise and a Musical Theatre Dance session with Deputy Director of LEAP Lauren. You can watch them all here.
