We were delighted Dance Consortia North West research programme supported us to investigate live music and choreography with our dancers living with Parkinson's.
Over 7 weeks we worked with Flowers Tannenbaum and Howard Haigh in Preston and Fleetwood respectively. We explored choreography and collaboration with live music. It was an exciting and progressive project which enabled us to witness how live music supported our dancers and gave a new dimesion to our weekly classes.
As a larger team we were able to trial new ideas within a supportive framework. We challenged ourselves, experimented, listened to feedback and adapted. We scratched the surface of something much bigger.
We look forward to sharing with you insights into the project in a couple of weeks when we release a short film capturing the process. Watch this space!
