This micro-project allowed me to work with a group of young people from Mossley who had never danced before. We worked together intensively over a month to develop dance skills and then begin to work creatively. We collaboratively devised a piece of dance that we felt represented the town of Mossley incorporating contemporary dance, street dance and physical theatre. The project culminated in a performance for the twinning committee and their French counterparts at a ceremonial dinner.
For many of the young people involved this was such a huge achievement and it was lovely to have been a part of this.
