Our Work

What We Do

 All our work – whether a walkabout performance at a festival or a longer dance piece commissioned and choreographed for a specific event – is about improvisation, inclusion and participation.

We love to appear in unexpected places, surprising the audience and engaging them in the moment. We have a range of performances to offer and can create something magical to suit your event or setting.

Dance for Parkinson's

A growing body of evidence points to the real physical, mental and social benefits experienced by people living with Parkinson’s when they dance.

Our aim is to bring people with Parkinson’s and their carers together to enjoy movement, music and self-expression in a non-judgemental environment.

"It was really beautiful and moving. Be very, very proud."  

Marie Mccluskey MBE

Director at Swindon Dance

"Thank you so much for being part of Bristol Open Stage on Sunday. It was a really evocative piece of work, which really added to the variety of arts seen in Showcase 1.  The feathers/flight sequence was particularly effective. The music choices were great, too."

James Perries

Bristol Old Vic

"A massive well done! You did the city proud." 

Katy Noakes

Arts Officer Bristol City Council

“It makes me feel good, it gives me a workout, it has emotional content and it requires interaction with other dancers. All these benefits enable me to live with a little more ‘joie de vivre’ in my life.”

Participant

Misfit’s movement sessions

"One thing I took from Shambala this year was remembering how to play – which is a wonderful thing. It was hitting the clowning workshop straight away that helped me throw off the 'self-consciousness and status anxiety', so... thanks!"
