Monday 8th April is the last of our Feast funded Inclusive Dance Theatre Workshops supported by the Performance Centre, Falmouth University.
Do come, they have been fun, entertaining, accessible and useful and have enabled people across the county of all ages and abilities with a love of dance and inclusion, to meet up and share skills and practise, led by Jo Willis from Shallal and Lauren Davey from Access and supported by experienced practitioners, Colin Curbishley and Debbie O'Nyons.
Working with people of different ages and physicality etc, challenges us, it develops our movement, increases empathy and understanding, creates exciting work, enables spontaneous work of depth and fun to be created from simple exercises. We work in light hearted but safe and structured way to enable everyone to access and join in at a comfortable but also challenging level for themselves.
It's happening elsewhere ( see link) as the need for inclusive skills is recognised
Come along and see how Shallal and Access work, meet company members, other artists etc...
