Due to covid restrictions, we have revised our most recent project to become our first dance for screen work, due for completion at the end of 2021, funded by DCMS and National Lottery Community Fund.
This project involved outreach performances and workshops in nursing and care homes, working in a dementia friendly way with our members engaging with participants and leading sessions. This was possible thanks to 3 year core funding from Nottinghamshire County Council’s Local Improvement Scheme
A photographic exhibit we created in collaboration with award winning Nottingham based photographer David Severn. We shot at various locations in our local area to create work in response to challenging the public’s perceptions of older people dancing. The images were toured to local groups accompanied by a live performance and are now on permanent display at College Street Centre, Nottingham, funded by Nottinghamshire County Council’s Arts Grant scheme.
A collaboration with film maker Tom Oliver and Hall Park Academy School. Dancers from the local secondary school joined us to perform live at the school’s performing arts showcase, funded by Nottinghamshire County Council.
