Join our Community Dance Project!

Join our community dance project and perform at Stanley Arts!

As part of our Commons dance festival in May we are running a free dance project for local people who are new to dance. 

The project will involve 5 days working with a choreographer at Stanley Arts, from 23-27 May, to create a new piece of South Asian dance work. You will learn some basic dance technique and will then create a short piece of choreography together. The choreography will then be performed at Stanley Arts on May 28th as part of our Commons: After Dark finale party in front of an audience. You don’t need any previous dance experience to join – just an enthusiasm to try something different and to move! 

Participants will receive: 

  • Transport costs for travel to and from Stanley Arts
  • Lunch
  • Translators, in case English will be a barrier to you taking part

Participants who have experienced homelessness or displacement will be prioritised for this project, as will those aged over 50. 

If you would like to join this project please contact Nina at to discuss what support you might need to access this project.
