About - Northern School of Contemporary Dance


Physically ambitious, strikingly original dance.

In 2023 VERVE present a visually striking, highly physical triple bill of new contemporary dance works by award-winning choreographer Jamaal Burkmaar, dance artist Faye Tan and acclaimed Spanish duo KOR’SIA.

VERVE comprises eighteen dancers, trained at some of the world’s leading conservatoires. Each year the company commissions choreographers from all over the world to create an artistically distinct, physically daring and engaging programme of dance work.

See repertoire for a list of choreographers who have previously worked with the company.

VERVE is the internationally touring postgraduate company of Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD).
