Theatre by the Lake in Keswick welcomes a new generation of dancers to its main stage March 22 by hosting the Northern School of Contemporary Dance’s postgraduate dance company VERVE, who will perform three new dance works alongside a restaging of Shutdown.

It’s physically charged and original dance from a company which consists of 13 emerging dancers, including Lake District-born Ferghas Clavey, who is also an alumnus of Cumbria Youth Dance.

As well as dancers from the UK, VERVE includes dancers from Chile, Italy, Portugal, Singapore and Uruguay creating a truly international dance company.
