We believe participation in the arts changes lives. We need your help to develop our education and outreach work, as well as support our performance work.
If you’d like to support us, here’s our virtual hat on the pavement/tip jar
Here’s our 10th Birthday celebratory video to show you what we get up to!
We really do need your help in keeping us on the road. Times are getting harder for arts organisations, dancers, musicians, tech crews and choreographers. Any support you can give us will be hugely appreciated, and ploughed back in the Folk Dance Remixed project.
We takes its inspiration from the similarities and differences in hip hop and folk dance; essentially, they have both come from the street and from the people; they both have social aspects and room for self-expression. The resulting synergy has the creative impact and power to excite audiences and participants, celebrating diverse traditions and approaches to dance and movement.
We have plans to create further performance and participation elements, and engage both the dancers and musicians in further research and development periods. We are busy searching out alternative funding possibilities and avenues for new work at every opportunity.
Our long term plan is to develop our own youth company, further develop out fusion of folk and hip hop music as well as train up our team to teach the styles staying true to their techniques and history. We also host inspiring workshops that get families up and dancing together and strangers holding hands and laughing within minutes, our work truly touches all that come into contact with it!
