We are delighted to have the support of BBC Children in Need who have awarded a three year grant to ActOne for the DanceBase youth groups. This is timely and essential support, and the young dancers are overjoyed that we can continue to deliver their weekly after-school sessions in Ware and Watford.
The annual Showcase in 2015 was packed with joyful and imaginative performances from all of ActOne’s projects.
Freedom Dance performed a piece from their repertoire called After the Rain. The piece opened with an atmospheric poem written by the talented Rosie, then complimented by individual solos, exploring each dancers own personal difficulties and frustrations in life. The piece went on to reflect how the unique group can support one person to shine, how couples can support each other, and how as a group we can literally lift each other to shine and blossom as individuals.
The DanceBase Ware and Watford youth groups chose to set their pieces in the great outdoors, and they made full use of the space to express their ideas.
