Making Waves

Making Waves is the new name for our performance company for experienced dancers aged 50 and over, who like to create new work and perform, often in site-specific, outdoor spaces.

The company collaborates with other groups and works with a variety of choreographers. Sessions are creative, playful, sometimes challenging and always inclusive.

The company's dancers say they feel great joy in the work they do - and enriched, empowered, uplifted and inspired.

Making Waves is a safe, supportive, creative group, and new dancers are always welcome.

This term they're working with Enid Gill on creating an outdoor performance for Leominster Festival.

What current Making Waves dancers say:

  • “Being inclusive is what touches me the most”
  • “It’s a joy to share the work we’ve created with an audience, often outside in unexpected places” 
  • “I love creating performances for very different spaces and places, from stately homes to local streets and festivals”  
  • “Being with the company, creating and performing, are special moments in our busy lives”
