Thank you for making 'Resilience' a success!

A fantastic audience for our end of year dance showcase

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our end of year dance showcase, 'Resilience'. We are grateful to those who were in the audience, and those who supported from afar. The dancers presented a range of pieces in Jazz, Contemporary and South African influenced dance styles, choreographed by Kamara Gray, Gerrard Martin, Amanda Lewis, and guest choreographer Mbulelo Ndabeni.

The evening was hosted by Simone Daley-Richards, and also featured performances by two special guest artists. Choreographer, Hannah Anderson-Ricketts,  presented a beautiful duet, 'Remote', featuring dancers Valerie Ebuwa and Cherilyn Albert. Namron OBE, performed his emotional solo, 'Missing', which was a delight to watch. The audience included the Worshipful the Mayor of Islington, Councillor Kat Fletcher and the Islington Young Mayor, Darey Cletus who both gave positive feedback for the performance.

We'd like to thank the Islington Council Local Initiatives Fund for their support, as well as  Paradise Patties and Miss Munchins Cupcakes, for providing the delicious food for the evening. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we look forward to presenting futures performances.
