IF Dance Festival- A celebration of inclusion and dance
26th March 2018 10am-6pm
LPM Dance Theatre and Lancaster Arts bring together a broad range of renowned practitioners and companies specialising in dance as part of healthcare, child development, education and social change for a one-day festival of workshops, performance and discussions.
The day is practice focused and, in practical workshops, delegates can opt to engage practically or as an observer. All workshops are devised for people with and without a movement background. The programme has been designed for delegates to engage with all aspects of the day if possible.
IF is open to artists, healthcare professionals, researchers, students and anyone interested in the area of inclusive dance practice.
IF will feature Indepen-dance, Primed for Life, Mary Prestige, Dr Richard Coaten and Lisa Simpson Inclusive Dance amongst others.
This trailer celebrates a selection of our eclectic work. We practice in a diverse range of settings and create new performance work for many different environments.
We work in close collaboration with other small project funded dance companies in the North West offering fund raising support, project management and choreographic mentoring. Most recently we have been working with TurnAround Dance Theatre, Lisa Simpson Inclusive Dance and AbouTime Dance Company on current projects.
Our ambition is to further the reach of high quality dance experiences across society, awakening the power of dance in all. Whether that be through performance, participation or research.
