2. Learn a shorter dance on video and join in on the day! 

Age: All ages 

Groups

There is a limited number of spaces for leaders of younger dancers (dance leaders only – not groups) to attend a rehearsal on Sunday 3rd July at Arundel and Cadman Rooms in the Millennium Gallery.

At these rehearsals, group leaders will see the overall choreography of the work and support their younger dancers in their own classes to learn the movement sequence from the video so that if they can come on the day with their families they can join in the participatory element of the dance.

If your dance group is interested in getting involved in taking part, please contact [email protected].

Individuals

We will share a video with a short movement sequence that anyone can learn ahead of the day and join in with. We encourage younger dancers to learn this with their families and come along on the day to dance together.
