‘More Reasons to Dance’

A Practice Sharing and Artist Development programme for dancers with disabilities and those facilitating/creating dance with disabled dancers.

Cheshire Dance, Fallen Angels Dance Theatre and the Bluecoat's Blue Room are the organisations that make up the network for the People Dancings 11 Million Reasons to Dance Legacy in Cheshire and Merseyside.

Call out for dancers with disabilities and dance artists working with people with disabilities

The More Reasons to Dance practice network offers opportunities for all participants to learn from one another, to develop art form skills and to strengthen the links between the dance and disability communities across Cheshire and Merseyside.  Artists (both professional and non-professional) can share and develop their practice, connect with other artists in the region and to begin to identify what support they need for their own development and the development of this community as a whole.

The series consists of three sessions which will take place in 2018, hosted by the three core More Reasons to Dance groups:

Thursday 22nd February – Blue Room, Bluecoat, Liverpool
Tuesday 8th May – Cheshire Dance, Canal Street Movers, Chester
Monday 2nd July – Fallen Angels, Storyhouse, Chester
A fourth session is anticipated in September 2018 which will celebrate and look at next steps. Date and venue (Chester or Liverpool) TBC

We would like to invite dancers with disabilities and dance artists who work with people with disabilities to join the group and participate in the practice sharing sessions.

Travel bursaries are available to cover costs of getting to and from the sessions (including support costs if needed.)

There are a LIMITED number of places available. Places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis with priority for dancers with disabilities.
