Audience members stated that their highlight of the event was ‘being able to watch all of the different performances’. A huge thank you to Trinity Laban for including us in such an uplifting event.

The dancers have started work with their first choreographer, Gerrard Martin and it is looking good! Gerrard is an extremely experienced artist and we are fortunate to have him on board. Have a look at his extensive biog here: www.gerrardmartindance.com
The dancers worked with both Gerrard and videographer Charlotte Levy to film sections of their piece, 'In a State of Lack'. The footage will be made into a short dance film. Watch this space for the full dance footage. Until then, have a look at short excerpt of the work filmed. 

2014 - Year in review

We would like to thank everyone who helped make 2014 an unforgettable year for us. Here's a look back at some of our most memorable moments from the year. Enjoy!

Fantastic workshop with dance legend, Namron!

The dancers had the unique experience of working with legendary dance artist, Namronin an exciting contemporary dance workshop. The workshop was challenging and fast paced and thoroughly enjoyed by all (including myself!). The workshop was performed with the accompaniment of the fantastic drummer, Charles. Such amazing energy!

Since the workshop, Namron has also been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list! This is a well deserved recognition to his services to dance and I hope to be able to have him back again to work with the dancers. Thank you Namron, OBE!
