Today, on World Theatre Day, the company is launching its first online classes available online for all ages - from little ones up to the over 50s.

The company, which says it will miss the spectacle and communal nature of real live performance, will offer the online platforms to celebrate creativity and promote mental and physical well-being.

The Pop Up Space classes will be free online via Zoom for the next month, with professionally trained dancers guiding participants through a series of fun and inspirational sessions live streamed through the Zoom online platform viathe company's website.

Jasmin Vardimon said: "In these difficult times I feel we have to do everything we can to help our communities. I hope our offer will benefit dance students, professional dancers and other individuals and families who are at home and looking for ways to keep active and stay healthy."
