a film and dance project for boys
aged 11-19 in Rotherham
In February half term (2015), our Rotherham Boys took part in an exciting dance for camera project ‘Surveillance’.
10 boys were joined by professional film maker, Rad Miller, and professional dance artist Bobak Walker, in a two day project held at Wath Comprehensive School.
The Rotherham boys worked as a professional crew over both days, creating, rehearsing and shooting their own choreography and working together to capture footage using ipads and handheld devices. The result is a dynamic dance for camera piece which the group will submit for national youth film festivals.
“Surveillance was a great project for the boys to learn new skills as well as develop their ideas about choreography. I took great pleasure in watching the boys grow over the two days and begin to think specially about making dance for camera.” Lisa Clayton, Project Manager
Rotherham Boys Project, funded by Provident Financial, has created many opportunities for boys to dance in the four areas of Wath, Swinton, Herringthorpe and Kimberworth since its launch in 2013.
