Family & Pre-school Dance Project - Kingswood & Hazel Leys

Dance Across the Years

Supported through funding from Northamptonshire Community Foundation, The Compton Fund for Arts Wriggle are delivering an inter-generational community dance project with participants from St Crispins Retirement Village and St Lukes CEVA Primary School in Northampton.

The project is running for 10 weeks and culminates in a performance to an invited audience of friends and family at St Crispin Village Hall in March. The group has 30 participants between the ages of 8 and 93 who each week, working with Wriggle Dance Theatre, create dances together and learn fun dance routines.

The project is an opportunity to bring young and old together and reduce social isolation. Maureen, one of the residents taking part, said 'I enjoy the sessions as much as the children do and they take me back many years, they are magical'.

The group has been sharing their stories and memories with each other and expressing them through creative dance.
