Vivre Dance Company is a dance company aimed at people aged 50 and over, who meet for two hours every week to train and create new choreography.

The company will form a collective of individuals who have existing experience in dance and/or dance training, who are willing to explore and push the boundaries of their creativity and who aspire to perform.    Our ambition is for Vivre Dance Company to be a friendly, generous and a supportive space where technique is developed, creativity is cultivated and performance confidence nurtured.

We’re thrilled to announce Vivre Dance Company will be led by Artistic Director Elizabeth Bolwell (see below).


The company will launch with it’s first 12-week term starting 16th January 2020, where we will meet every Thursday between 2 and 4pm in PDSW’s Garden Studio to focus on technique, creativity and performance.


PDSW will be hosting Vivre Dance Company Taster Workshops on Thursday 5th and 12th December 2019, 2-4pm in our Garden Studio. This will be an opportunity to meet Artistic Director Elizabeth Bolwell, connect with other dancers and experience the generous dance creativity that will underpin the company as it launches in January 2020.

You are welcome to attend either or both taster workshops. Limited spaces available, so do secure your space.

Elizabeth Bolwell Biography

“I love teaching; offering what I can, sharing and being inspired by those around me”

Laban trained in contemporary dance and with consequent training in specialisms including community dance, contact improvisation and developmental movement,  Lizzy’s career has led her to dance within professional dance, healthcare, education and social care contexts.

‘I endeavour to encourage opportunities where we value our creativity through improvisation which may then develop, through choreography, to become an effective means of communication to a wider audience’.

If not dancing, you’ll find Lizzy on the Yoga mat.
