This autumn has been an amazing time for our outreach projects with last night’s performance being no exception.
Together with the Arts Development team at Aneurin Leisure, we at the ffin dance faktry co-produced Off The Street, a dance showcase that saw over 70 children and young people from Blaenau Gwent, Wales UK sharing their work in a local theatre. The energy and enthusiasm from all of the young dancers was truly infectious and the sell-out audience was thrilled with the production. It was great to hear related stories from parents: one in particular told us how she had made good friends with other mothers that she didn’t really know very well,and their children have also become good playmates since starting dance classes 4 years ago. They had all bonded together because of dance.
Another parent told us that she had really enjoyed the performance which was presented in the round. She liked being “up close and personal” to the performance to see the joy in her daughters face when she was dancing; never having seen that look before, not even opening her Christmas presents!
We have 1 more outreach event before Christmas on Monday 14th December 2015, at Ebenezer Chapel in Abertillery, Wales UK. This event will see our young people from the ffin dance faktry share class and dance pieces with their families and friends and also raise much-needed funds for the coming year.
