Greenwich Dance Family Cabaret

19 May 2012

Saturday 19th May was the first day of Big Dance 2012, the UK’s biggest celebration of dance. Greenwich Dance is the Big Dance Hub for South East London, Greenwich Dance is working with local dancers, arts organisations, schools and councils to bring together 8 weeks of dance across south east London. Greenwich Dance kicked off the festivities with the Greenwich Dance Big Family Cabaret.

In my new role of Resident Artist of Greenwich Dance, I facilitated Drawing Dance. As the audience arrived I invited the children to join me and dancers: Victor Fung and Ragnhild Olsen on the dance floor which was covered in a huge carpet of white paper. Fabulous rhythmic drawings were made by the children and many adults too, inspired by the music DJ Festus Williams was playing and the dancing of Victor and Ranghild.

Award winning comedian Tom Roden from New Art Club was the compere.
