In the last few weeks our dancers have been having a brilliant time working with over 200 people across Cumbria, delivering taster dance workshops, teaching the Brewery Youth Dance group ‘Boyz Moves’ which consists of three classes for boys aged 7-15yrs and an adult class. As the sessions were led by the two male company dancers, this had a huge impact on the boys. The group were keen to learn new techniques and gain feedback from the company members.
On Sunday 30th Oct 2011 – 10 dancers aged 11-30 yrs worked together for 6 hours to create an exciting new piece of dance to be shown as a ‘Curtain Raiser’ performance, to be performed in the main theatre as part of the ‘ICE’ performance. This is a valuable opportunity for dancers to experience a different style and way of working. The performance was well received and the dancers really enjoyed this challenging opportunity.
These dance workshops were financially supported by CSC and The Westmorland Arts Trust. Many thanks for your support.
