Dancing Letters, 2017. Photography by The Other Richard, 2017

Are you 13-25 years old?

Would you like to explore dance and reading and writing letters in an open and supportive environment?

Dates: Tuesday 29th May – Saturday 2nd June, 10.30am – 4.30pm

Join Candoco Dance Company during this May half term for a free, creative dance project, suitable for disabled and non-disabled people age 13-25.

No dance experience is required, just your enthusiasm!

Come along, make new friends and improve your mental and physical well-being!

Working with two Candoco dance artists, you will spend the week exploring the relationship between words, letters and movement and how these physical and written expressions inspire us. You will work together for four days to create a unique dance performance which will be performed in a special location in Islington on Saturday 2nd June as part of Word Festival 2018.

This is a free project. Participants are expected to attend the full week.

Performance day:

The performance will take place in the afternoon of Saturday 2nd June in Islington, with other events as part of Word Festival. More details to follow. Note: There will be an earlier finish on the performance day.
