We have had an amazingly busy time with our education and outreach unit over the winter months, reaching new children and young people and also new audiences, sometimes seeing contemporary dance for the first time – what a great thing of which to be part!
I’ve been really concentrating on getting some further funding to be able to sustain what appears to be a huge demand for our community work with the dance faktry with not enough financial resources to supply the activities. Well that’s nothing new! So keep on keeping on and we will be rewarded soon I know. We have some wonderful new projects in the pipeline involving our young volunteers programme New Ground and also one of our A Level students would like to put together a programme of workshops for people in the community of Blaenau Gwent who have difficulty expressing their emotions, maybe through grief, anger or financial loss.
Next week the company will return to the studio for rehearsals, to which I am looking forward immensely. We will be opening our Still Standing Tour next month at Coleg Morgannwg in Cardiff performing Synapsequence by Gary Lambert, Stand Up Straight by company dancer Catrin Lewis and Fractal by myself.
After a quick charge of batteries, we are set for a wonderfully busy spring and summer and will be bringing you news, updates and blogs. Please keep visiting us and join us at a venue near you.
All good wishes
