Last Saturday was our 5th annual Winter Dance Faktry Festival held at our home base in The Met in Abertillery.
64 community dancers, 10 professional dancers, 2 photographers, 6 volunteers and 3 technicians brought together a showcase performance that ranged from professional dance pieces to works in progress that have been made during community projects over the past term.
We were joined by professional dance companies Ceyda Tanc Dance and Exim Dance, together with our youth groups from the community.
I am delighted to say that we played to a packed house, full not only of excited and supportive parents and friends but also the general public who wanted to come and share our work. The comments and feedback that we have received have been overwhelming with many congratulations on our achievements.
The Festival has grown and developed over the years and each year sees us making new friends and links and truly is a great celebration of our work and commitment to providing opportunities for young dancers and choreographers to stage their work with professional guidance and support.
Easter Dance Faktry Festival 2013 will be our next venture, we look forward to seeing you all again
