DADS – Social Dance Workshop

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 02 April 2016

During Seniors Week 2016, Dance Makers Collective are offering a workshop for seniors to learn and explore social dance, with a contemporary twist, in a fun and supportive environment. This year, Dance Makers Collective will premiere their newest stage production DADS, which takes a look at contemporary dance through the lens of our fathers, whose ideas about dancing are not always what you’d expect. To involve the community and share this work with you, we invite you to come and dance with us at Riverside Theatres, where members of Dance Makers Collective will lead you through dances to have fun and express yourself!

This workshop will be led by Dance Makers Collective members Matt Cornell and Anya Mckee, who will teach group social dancing from research conducted with fathers and grandfathers with vastly different perspectives on dance.  Where ‘old time’ meets ‘grooving’ to hit music from Johnny Cash to Michael Jackson, this dance hall is suited to anyone looking for a great time – mums, dads, grandparents and friends!

Suited to all levels of ability and experience, carers welcome!
