Over the summer we're part of Worcester Community Trust Summer Play Scheme on 27 July, 10 & 17 August and Worcester Arts Workshop's Wonders of the Oceans Visual Arts and Dancefest Workshops on 22-24 August.
We're putting the final touches to our autumn term of classes and workshops, which starts on 19 September. Join our mailing list if you'd like information or get in touch if you'd like us to post you a brochure, which will be sent out in August.
Our work is about joining in – we run over 30 weekly classes across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, have three youth companies, lead projects in schools, colleges and universities as well as in community settings
Dancefest exists to enable anyone to experience the joy of dance. In our eyes everyone is a dancer, regardless of age, ability or experience.
Helen Stallard, the Chair of Dancefest’s board and a Communications Consultant, has been talking to people who come (or used to come) to our classes, to celebrate their achievements and also help other people see how they can get involved with Dancefest. You can read their stories here.
We're really pleased to be working on these play schemes this summer
