Winter dance faktry festival 2016

3-amigosAs the glorious autumn days roll by, it’s time to turn our thoughts to winter time, and of course for us here at FFIN DANCE, the winter dance faktry festival.

This is when we bring all of our community and outreach groups together and share the new term’s work with family and friends.
We also have guests groups that we have worked with over the year and the professional dancers/dance graduates who have attended our winter intensives course during the week of the festival. It really is a joy to share the work of these emerging artists ranging from 4 years olds to professionally trained dancers all in the same show.  Held at The Met, our resident theatre in Abertillery, we combine all the groups in a friendly and supportive festival atmosphere with no competitive edge: all of the dancers at the festival get to watch the other dancers which we feel is a vital part of our outreach, we believe that the routes for progression from beginners to full graduate training need to be shown to young people to raise an awareness that dance can be a career, a way of life and not just a hobby.  We strive for excellence even at a young age.

We hope that you can join us in what will be a lovely occasion on November 12th 2016 at 7.30pm, here’s the ticket line.  If you’re a new-comer to our festivals please stick around to say hello, we’d love to meet you.

PA Summer Camp 2015

It’s with excitement and great pleasure that we announce our Performing Arts Summer Camp in partnership with Play Learn Play and Ebbw Fawr Learning Community

Our summer camp will involve daily singing and dance classes led by professional tutors who are industry specialists in the theatre, and will lead towards a showcase on the last afternoon that can be shared with family and friends.  It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be tiring and it’s going to be good!

This is our first partnership venture with Ebbw Fawr Learning Community and Play Learn Play and we are all very excited to see where it will lead – to great things we hope for our children and young people
