5 ways you can shake up your routine

by aprilskipp on August 4, 2016

1. Dance like no-one is watching

Do you have a song you love to dance to? Would you like to take part in a dance film?

Filmmaker Sara Lindström is making a short film of people dancing to their favourite song. The film will take a look at why dancing to a song we love is so joyful.

We’ll need about an hour of your time, but if you’d like to come and dance with a friend or your whole family, we can schedule in more time.

Give Callum a call, he’s happy to chat over this with you if you want to get involved – 0113 243  8765

2. Light up the night

We are currently looking for exciting work to be shown as part of our annual scratch night, run in conjunction with Light Night Leeds.

Got an idea you want to test out on an audience? Or a dance that just needs to be shown to the people of Leeds?

Fill out an short form and send it over to Callum. Simple as that, Bish Bash Bosh

3. Assemble in a public space

Share a moment with a complete stranger and take part in Nicola Conibere’s Assembly.

As part of Juncture Festival, we will be taking over Leeds Central Library to explore how we see and relate to other people as individuals and as parts in a crowd.

Take part in this live art work this October.

4. Swarm the streets of Leeds

Swarm Sculptures is a new durational movement installation created by Yorkshire based dance artist Lucy Suggate.

Using choreographic instructions participants will explore how simple patterning can encourage the transformation of the human form. No dance experience required.

Sound interesting? Sign up to a taster session with Lucy.

5. Get out in the community

Recently graduated?

We have an amazing opportunity for someone who is interested in working with young people and community groups.

Work closely with Yorkshire Dance’s Youth & Community team and gain a broad, hands-on introduction to all aspects of inclusive dance practice, administration and project co-ordination.
