About The Company

OLSEN Theatre and Dance Company (OLSENtdc) is a brand new arts amateur dramatics organisation, founded in 2020 and located in Bristol. We are an independent company who offer unique Theatre and Dance classes for both secondary school years and adults. OLSENtdc aims to bring Theatre and Dance together to create a modern style of performing, teaching students the real art of both Theatre and Dance and working as a ensemble to create our work. 

As part of the classes, we will explore the modern understanding of Theatre and Dance by using Multi-Media and Online resources. This learning, along with rehearsals, will work collaboratively towards our first company production which is due to take place in March 2021..

As OLSENtdc, our aim is to provide a creative, fun space to allow our students to gain further knowledge on all aspects of Theatre and Dance. The company will have an annual production every July for all students to partake in and a smaller showcase which will take place in December. We are very excited about this amazing new company that is launching this year in Bristol.
