We have developed a new South Cumbria Dance Partnership with Brewery Arts Centre and National Trust at Fell Foot to bring together 100 Children and Young People aged 6-18yrs from across South Cumbria, to devise an ambitious, innovative, original site-specific dance performance ‘ Now and Then ‘ on the site of the Historic House at Fell Foot.
This exciting project is in response to the evaluation of last year’s events and you will be thrilled to know that Ellen Turner, Zanna Dennis and Emma Hayes (Brewery Youth Arts) will be leading weekly inspirational dance classes at Brewery Arts Centre and DARE Dance Studio with additional days working as a whole cast of 100 on site at Fell Foot.
10 Young People aged 14-16yrs will be selected to be our first Youth Dance Ambassador Group. They will document the process of this amazing project with interviews, images, videos and observations to represent the project as it develops in social media and be part of the decision-making process.
DATES FOR YOUR DIARIES to #Make it happen
The Chance of a Lifetime Spectacular Performance will take place on Saturday 11th July at Fell Foot; 10-12 rehearsal followed by performances at 1pm 2pm (3pm).
So far we have raised money for the project from Arts Council England and we are hoping to complete the budget with funds from Cumbria Trusts and Foundations.
