Folk Dance Remixed survives through the fees from gigs and workshops, grants from funding bodies and donations from the public – people like you! We are striving to keep our multi talented, diverse, energetic, dedicated family on the road with our belief in the importance of creating spaces where people come together, share their traditions and bring out the best in each other. Our work has social cohesion at the core – exploring how people from different starting points and with different cultural expressions can come together in joy, passion, excitement – and infect everyone with a bit of fun!
We’ve launched a Folk Dance Remixed Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. So please take a couple of minutes to have a listen…. thank you.
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!
Please donate what you can to keep this joyous and eclectic company pushing forwards into the ground breaking territory that they have already taken by storm!
