Summer outreach activity

_DPT3376Last night saw the beginning of an extensive summer education and outreach programme.  Our company dancers Catrin, Julian and Sarah worked with over 60 children in Blaenau Gwent linking in with our new work from t e n Tour 2016 with partner organisations Toppers Dance and Aneurin Leisure Trust.   Later this week we will be working with another 50 children and young people at The Beaufort Theatre in Ebbw Vale.

Next month, we will be working with children in Brynmawr as part of a partnership programme with Tai Calon Community Housing, bringing professional dance to young people over a period of 2 free weekend courses. We will also be working with the Music Department at Tredegar Comprehensive: using music composed by the pupils themselves, we will be choreographing a new piece of work to be performed in the Aneurin Leisure annual dance showcase.
July sees the company delivering a number of Summer Dance Schools in Blaenau Gwent in partnership with the Arts Development team at Aneurin Leisure.

Summer into autumn

Desire To Dance ticketsHello to all.  Hopefully, you managed to have an excellent summer filled with glitter and sparkle, my absolute favourite time of year BY FAR!! As we draw to the end of sunny festival season, I thought it would be an appropriate time to check in with a blog.

The autumn period is looking rather busy for the company with rehearsals for new works, curtain raisers and performances in Wales/London. Those of you that follow us on social media will know that our project Desire To Dance will be an evening showcase where FFIN DANCE shares a new dance work created for students at Tredegar Comprehensive School together with a performance of The Power Of 3. A wonderful opportunity for those that could not make last season’s performances.  A great setting at Bedwellty House in Tredegar, with an opportunity to book a pre-show or post-show dinner in the new bistro – of course, wherever Sue is involved there is Tapas and wine ;-)….

As a company dancer, I am excited for the new dynamic Julian Lewis will bring into the company. The girls and I have had a wonderful year at FFIN DANCE, both on and off stage and we can’t wait to see what this season has to offer. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Julian into our Ffin family of 2015.

Do keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages as London tickets are selling fast. Be sure not to miss out!!
