VITAL! was presented in partnership with Bluecoat in September to a packed house and featured dance from six companies and artists from the North of England and Australia. We wanted to shine a light on the vibrant dance scene for older people that is growing across the UK. The event has sparked discussions about potential projects, training and opportunities for older people and artists who work in this field.
We'd like to say a huge thanks to 50 Moves, Growing Older (Dis) Gracefully, GOLDS, GG Dance Collective, The Marple Movers and Bisakha Sarker.
Keep an eye out for more info in the next edition of Participate (People Dancing’s new newspaper publication)
This event is part of MDI's 'Move on Up' Dance and Health programme.
