Projects

We work on a wide range of projects each year and involve many people of all ages in creating new dance.

Chance to Dance Company (50+)
Rehearsals from Sunday 7 May and then fortnightly, working towards performances at Ledbury Poetry Festival on 9 July and at National Trust Croome on 23 July. A company for experienced dancers aged 50 and over, who like to create, experiment and who have a passion to perform.

Performance group for experienced dancers. Rehearsals from Sunday 7 May and then fortnightly for performances at Ledbury Poetry Festival on 9 July, Watch Out Worcester on 22 July and Quiet Revolution at National Trust Croome on 23 July.

 

Big Jigsaw - Access and Inclusion
Big Jigsaw is Dancefest's access and inclusion project and aims to challenge, surprise and push boundaries in integrated dance, working with disabled and non-disabled performers of all ages.

Youth Dance
We have lots of classes and projects for young people and audition each year for our youth dance companies. We provide information, support and performance opportunities for young dancers and choreographers.

Workshops
We offer regular workshops, often led by guest artists or visiting dance companies, for both experienced dancers and people who have never danced before.
