Dance Opportunities

Some fabulous dance opportunities coming up in the autumn, if you like the look of anything you see below send an email to me, Christina telling her which bits of this you would like to join in with.

TAVAZIVA Dance Company – 6th to 10th of November. The show is called ‘Izindava’ which means ‘News’ – the company are classically trained contemporary dancers working in an African context choreographed by the amazing Bawren Tavaziva. So here is our idea:

    • You can come and see the show at Falmouth University AMATA on Friday 20th of October matinee performance, tickets are free as long as booked through AMATA and there may be help with transport.
    • Following the show you can have either a one off workshop with one of the company dancers or a mini residency of 3 sessions to make a performance for our Hall for Cornwall Dance Platform in January. See below for Primary and Secondary Platform details.
    • A half day workshop will cost you £225
    • A Full day is £350
    • If you want to do a series of 3 or more let us know and we will work out the best possible price.

             It’s first come first served for the workshop so tell us quick.

 ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ – PRIMARY DANCE PLATFORM – at Hall for Cornwall on 30th Jan 2018. 

This is stunning opportunity for primary schools to make great dance work and put it on a professional stage.  

  • We have chosen a global theme to allow schools to think about ‘world’ ideas and other cultures and some schools might want to use the TAVAZIVA residency to help make a piece. 
  • You can either sign up for the project and make the work yourself or book some choreographic workshops from our team to get it all going. Inclusion  in the project is £220 and if you want to add in a 3 session workshop package that will cost £600 overall.  
  • This is an incredibly successful and popular event with primary schools so please book early to secure your place as we can only take 12 schools.

 ‘Anthem’- SECONDARY DANCE PLATFORM – at Hall for Cornwall on 29th Jan 2018. An opportunity for secondary schools to show specially choreographed dance works on a professional stage. The title Anthem refers to the music choices- so we challenge all groups to choose truly iconic pieces of music from any era- we are thinking David Bowie to Ennio Morricone, Elbow to Adele. 

  • You can either sign up for the project and make the work yourself or book some choreographic workshops from our team to get it all going. Inclusion in the project is £220 and if you want to add in a 3 session workshop package that will cost £600 overall.  
  • This is our first secondary platform in response to the great success of the primary version.  Places are limited to 12 schools or groups please book early to secure your place.

Prideaux Angels’ – A Christmas project – This Christmas DR2 and Prideaux Place are collaborating to produce a magical Christmas experience with dance, digital projections, lights and food. The event will be performed by professionals but we want to extend the experience to schools and communities. The story is set in the 1940s and rooted in the history of Prideaux Place in Padstow. We are offering angel lantern making workshops working with artist Laura Martin famed for her extraordinary BikeLights creations.  

  • Laura will make beautiful large scale lantern sculptures that you can display in school and the idea is that after the end of term they will also be shown at Prideaux Place as part of the Christmas event.  
  • Prices  are £300 for a full day workshop including materials or £800 for a 3 day series if you feel like you have grand ideas. 
  • We are also offering Angel themed days of dance in school by Sarah Waller and Grace Clayton making dances using themes from the show. You will have enormous fun and present a performance in school as part of your Christmas celebrations – it is £200 a day.  Dates are limited so please book early.

 Please book any of the above projects with Christina@dancerepublic2.com.  If you want to talk any of this through or have other dance ideas that you would like to discuss with us call Antony on 07759488240 or antony@antonywaller.com
