WHAT WE'RE UP TO THIS SUMMER...

summer


WOMAD

WOMAD 2018

We're at Wonderful WOMAD in July with a programme for children based on this year's theme of INSECTS. Get your wings flapping, have a go at flying low, spin, glide, tip and swing - and, if you’re ready, go higher! There’s a rain machine, giant web and lots of lovely bug things to do. Open to 5 years+, all abilities welcome, no previous experience needed.


Arts & Health Symposium

Tayla Made

We presented a short performance piece at this year's event in Worcester.
Tayla Made’ is an inter-generational work with dancers spanning 50 years that explores Tayla's experience of skiing as a wheelchair user.

A Worcester Arts Partnership New Prescriptions project




Tea Dances

Tea dance

We’ve been out and about these past few months leading dance sessions and working with the Alzheimer’s Society on Dementia Friends information sessions for local schools.
The project culminated with three open air Tea Dances - at Whitegates Care Home, The Grange and Longlands Care Farm.
There was music, dancing, tea, scones and lots of laughter.

Our Man in the Moone

Our Man in the Moone

A year-long, arts, education and community project for people living in North Herefordshire, starting in September 2018.

The writer of the first - and most extraordinary - work of science fiction published in 1638, Bishop Francis Godwin, lived in the village that EVERYBODY DANCE is based in and we’re planning to explore, develop and celebrate this with a host of ways for people to get involved and contribute, ranging from a book club to schools workshops, archive visits, storytelling and an aerial performance project.

Supported by Whitbourne Village Shop Fund - and looking for other funders

AERIAL YOGA

aerial yoga

Rachel has practised yoga for over 35 years and has combined it with her experience and expertise in aerial dance to teach Vayu Aerial Yoga.

It is a practice that was developed to create space mentally and physically, by opening up the body through various postures, using a custom designed yoga hammock.

Rachel is keen to develop ways that Vayu can be made accessible ​for all abilities and ages.
To​ help with this development of accessible classes, to join a class or find out more, please visit Rachel Freeman Vayu Aerial Yoga here and on Facebook.





CREATIVE AGEING

Rachel has been leading dance and movement sessions for people with dementia and this little video by Alice Pengelly shows some of the work done under the umbrella of the Courtyard in Hereford.
