The Garage, Norwich seeks 3 disabled individuals to take part in a European inclusive dance project

The Garage, Norwich is the U.K Partner for an exciting European Inclusive Dance Project funded by Erasmus.

They are on the search for 3 disabled individuals aged 14+ who would like to take on the challenge of this project and join us on our journey into inclusive dance with the DAN.CE IN Project- Dance Accessibility and Inclusion

The selected disabled participants do not need any previous dance experience but will need to demonstrate a desire to express themselves, to move, to perform, to interact with others and possess the ability to participate as an equal partner in a collective work.

Inclusive Dance offers a different reality where people with different types of bodies and minds approach the creative dance process, discovering their own way of moving, communicating and dancing. Dance shouldn't be considered for just a few elite individuals and exclude the rest.

Participating in the process will be both abled and disabled professional dancers, dance trainers and disabled people from Italy, Spain and the U.K.

The project includes:-

  • Physically exploring movement & dance
  • Travelling to Spain & Italy (All participants travel and accommodation will be covered, there is also money to contribute towards the group's food during the trips)
  • Performing at a festival and in a theatre
  • Participating/Contributing to Inclusive Practice Events/Conferences

The project will start with a phase of study of the methodology of inclusive dance followed by three training exchanges hosted in Spain, Italy and in the United Kingdom.

If you are interested in becoming one of the disabled participants on this exciting Inclusive Dance Project, please sign up for the open dance workshop which take place at The Garage on Saturday 8 December 1pm-3pm by calling 01603 283382. For more information email carrie.mansfield@thegarage.org.uk

Once you are signed up to the workshop, a member of The Garage Team will call you to arrange an additional interview.

Remember you do not need any previous dance experience but rather a desire to express, move, create and collaborate.
