One Big Dance (OBD) was created by movement specialist Grace Goulding in March 2020. With the assistance of fellow movement practitioners Felipe Pacheco and Alice Lapworth, OBD launched in April 2020 mid-Lockdown 1.0. The heart of OBD was to create community amidst isolation and to bring hope and joy to those who felt alone.

 

One Big Dance has continued as a community arts project throughout the last 18 months thanks to our wonderful friends at Off The Ground Theatre Company. We are delighted and chuffed to bits that OTG have collaborated with us to bring you both documentaries that follow the creation and delivery of our two-part lockdown arts project.

 

We also have been working with a number of schools delivering online FLASHMOB dances, enrichment, fun and creative online CPDs all powered by our inclusive and joyous practice.

 

If you have young people that would benefit from a One Big Dance, why not get in touch?
