Mr Stephen Mason

Lecturer in Dance


Over the past 16 years I have developed a portfolio career working in the youth and community dance and education sectors as a freelance dance artist, teacher in formal education, choreographer and project manager.  As Dance Development Officer for The Place I managed and delivered a cross-curricular project for primary schools. I have worked as an Animateur for Richard Alston Dance Company, Deputy Choreographer for Royston Maldoom and performed with Loop Dance Company. I have taught in several Further Education colleges in London and a specialist performing arts academy in the West Midlands where I worked with gifted and talented young dancers and co-directed two youth dance companies that performed nationally. I have also been a Special Advisor to the National Dance Teachers Association. Currently, I teach on Trinity Laban's youth programme and am a member of One Dance UK's Expert Panel for Children and Young People's Dance.
