Alston in Overdrive

Posted on June 16, 2011

Alston in Overdrive is a new digital resource for secondary school dance teachers and students in GCSE dance, music and performing arts.


The website was developed by London Grid for Learning in partnership with The Place and Richard Alston Dance Company as a tool for Alston’s Overdrive, currently on the syllabus. It has lesson plans, resource sheets, film clips, interviews and studio footage. See for details.
