Contemporary Dance has become a very popular option at Downe House and the Dance Department has appointed Luke Brown, the Artistic Director of Luke Brown Dance. Luke graduated from London Studio Centre in 2012, having specialised in Contemporary Dance and toured with INTOTO dance company. Since graduating he has worked as both a dancer and choreographer for companies including Frantic Assembly, English National Opera, Junk Ensemble, Ben Wright and Lila Dance Company.

Head of Dance, Miss Olivia Ward said,
Luke is going to be a wonderful asset to the Dance Department at Downe House bringing his collaborative and incredibly creative approach to our newly formed Dance Academy – we have already started work on our next dance production which will be Mulan and I know he will be instrumental in making it a huge success and a very valuable experience for the girls. I am very much looking forward to working with him and on behalf of everyone would like to welcome him to Downe House.
