Are you a dance floor lover? Have you broken a sweat dancing in a social hall, a club, a ballroom or even the corner of a pub?  Want to share your story?

We are looking for community participants from across the generations in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) to take part in Genevieve Say’s new show, Le Club Social.

Le Club Social is a nostalgic, immersive journey into BCP’s local dance memories from across the decades. Through community workshops and rehearsals with Genevieve and her duo of local professional dancers, we’ll recreate an imaginary nightclub, Le Club Social, in Pavilion Dance’s Ocean Theatre. This is a fun chance to relive first meetings, all night moving, sticky floors and the joy of dancing.

The community cast will be 18 to 80yrs+ and will reflect our amazing local area, so you don’t need to have any dance experience, just a memory or love of the dance floor. It’s free to take part – here’s how you can get involved:

Step 1: Join us in one of our taster sessions to be part of our community cast

Pavilion Dance, Bournemouth:  Sat 11 March: 11:30-13:00 or 14:30-16:00

Bearwood Community Centre, Bearwood: Sun 12 March: 10:30-12:00 or 13:30-15:00
