Breathe – you are not alone!
A one-day event for dancers working or interested in working in community contexts with a focus on health and wellbeing.
It is a fantastic opportunity to meet other dancers and dip your toe into a range of practical sessions to support your practice.
This year’s event is curated and facilitated by the fabulous dance artist Lois Taylor. We will be joined by Guest Artist Danielle Teale who will be leading an Artist Conversation in the lead up to our hosting of her professional development project the Artist Exchange Programme.
Caroline Schanche and Jayne Devlin from Inner Ground will present a practical workshop about Breath and Hand Jive, their project which provides movement and visual art sessions specifically designed for people recovering from a stroke.
Sam Lawrence will be sharing the work of Dance Centred and its project Breathing Space. Working with adults with mental health concerns and the organisation who work to support them, the project consists of building new relationships, offering outreach activity and setting up a pop up 5 week programme of dance in an empty shop and local hall on the high street of Bodmin.
Exim Dance Company will lead a session focused around their work with ADAPT, their Youth Inclusive Dance Company for young people aged 12-25 years with and without disabilities, behaviour disorders and those in care arrangements.
The event takes place on Saturday 8th Feb 2020, 10am – 5pm at the Tacchi Morris Arts Centre, Taunton.
Spaces are limited so please book to secure your place.
