Education is a crucial part of the company's work. Not simply because it allows us to reach out to different communities, to increase an awareness about our choreographic origins and practice, but also because ideas that are born 

within a workshop or lecture demonstration setting, never fail to feed in to create concepts that further our own future artistic creations.


Our team have extensive experience in leading and devising motivational and high quality workshops/performances for various organisations, schools and universities based in the UK and abroad.

Having been the artistic director previously for Indian Ballet Academy and taking classical ballet to British Council libraries, various schools and orphanages in various parts of India, Ash finds himself in the unique position to do

 the same with the classical/folkloric/popular film dance styles of the Indian sub continent here in the UK, to enrich any artistic programme or endeavour by creating tailor made workshop packages.

Past collaborators in the UK include FIPA, Akademi, Shivanova and Real Arts. Ash has also conducted workshops for Surrey Youth Ballet, St Joseph Ballet Los Angeles, University of Surrey, Ackland Burghley School London, 

Evelyn Grace Academy Brixton and Amanda Redman's Artist Theatre School. Ash is currently leading a South Asian dance history and choreographic practice module for second year students at Canterbury Christ Church 

University,UK and another module on Non Western Character Types at E15 Acting College, University of Essex.

Workshops are catered towards Reception year, Primary and  Secondary School students as well for University, Adults, Older Generation, Intermediate / Professional class, as well as one on one coaching

Each workshop is tailored for the individual client after consultation. The tone of the workshop or lecture demonstration is always fun, informative and challenging at the same time and aims to initiate strategic projects that add 

value, inspire, increase self confidence, enhance physical skills in a holistic manner and essentially leave a lasting legacy.

TESTIMONIALS

"Ash Mukherjee has been with us for approximately two years, working towards our Summer Productions which incorporates drama, dance and music. He has choreographed the whole show and is teaching all 

age groups from age five to thirty five.

Ash has impressed us immensely with excellent teaching methods, instilling character and confidence in each student within an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment. This is particularly effective with our teenage 

groups who have little or no dance training and Ash has managed to inspire them to reach amazing levels of performance.

 For our forthcoming production, Ash has choreographed varying styles including Modern, Busby Berkeley, Latin Dance, Classical Ballet and Indian Dance. He has also incorporated different genres of Acting,

 Comedy and Physical Theatre.

 We are very privileged to have someone as talented, passionate and professional as Ash involved with our students and feel he would be a tremendous asset to any company."

Amanda Redman, Actor at New Tricks, BBC1 & Principal, Artist Theatre School

"Ash Mukherjee has worked with FIPA over the last three years as a performer (dance and text), choreographer, workshop tutor, and as interviewer and transcriber in the collection of cultural oral history. 

At all times he has demonstrated his amazing ability to be highly creative and inventive in the use of cultural, social and historical materials for workshops and productions he has led. 

He is also remarkable in working with young people. He keeps them on their toes, constantly challenges their imaginations and encourages them to push their boundaries."  


Hi Ching, Artistic Director, FIPA
