Dance Unstuck with GDance, 15-20 August

This is a GDance (Gloucester) project with the main goal to create access to ballet training for disabled dancers. This was a five day research process working with four dancers to establish an accessible, shared and overlapping working praxis based on the traditional ballet class format and vocabulary. Leading questions were:

What is the form, function or intention of the movement?
Can we generate new material that is consistent with the characteristics of ballet?

The project was hosted in the studio of Ballet Cymru in Newport, Wales. The collaborating dancers were Suzie Birchwood (independent dancer and Artistic Director ActOne ArtsBase), Krystal Lowe (Ballet Cymru), Victoria Malin (independent dancer, Candoco Artist) and Robbie Moorecroft (Ballet Cymru). Project manager was Louise Brown from GDance.
