We (that’s Anita & Gemma) seem to be all over the place at the moment. But in a really good way, as SLIDE is moving upwards and all kinds of ways.
2015 is about developing our community projects with new monthly dance workshop for adults with learning disabilities, in collaboration with CALAT and Club Soda. We kicked off in January when we were joined by 20 brilliant dancers. We can’t wait for the next one: 21st Feb. Book here.
In the Spring we will be delivering a series of workshops for families to promote active and healthy living, supported by a grant from Croydon Heart Town (CVA). More details on this to come!
AND…..SLiDE and The BRIT School have been selected to perform at Trinity Laban as part of U.Dance, a national youth dance festival led by Youth Dance England. Performance date: Sunday 26th April.
Excitingly we are both Artists in Residence in the coming weeks. Anita was selected to spend a week in Stanley Halls developing a new piece for families with storyteller Naqiya Ebrahim, as well as her own children who are 5 and 3. Stanley Halls is about to open after 15 years so we are excited to be part of this special event for South Norwood! The event is 13th February, tickets: Invention Theatre. Whilst Gemma will be Artist in Residence at Brandon Library in Southwark, part of the SPINE festival with Apples and Snakes.
On February 14th, we head to Move It! We will join the inclusive dance conversation, represented by Candoco, Stopgap and SLiDE, when we will share insights into our practice through our work in schools and the community.
