'Our Journey through Movement'
Inspired by the African American choreographer Alvin Ailey, part-time dance have recreated Alvin Ailey’s 1960’s workRevelations. Through research, the dancers have been exploring the key movements and group formations from the three sections. The dancers have also been inspired by the gospel music which is used within the piece.
The opening of the piece is a creation of movement the dancers have been exploring throughout the year, working on teamwork, connections and creating movement through action words.
Music: Portugal. The Man. Woodstock

After highlighting our Inspirational Artists for Arts Award, we then created our own: an imaginary, nameless, successful singer on tour somewhere, playing to sell-out crowds across the board. We thought about their daily life, their preparations, the travelling, the promotion, the endless interviews and of course their motivation and the shows themselves. We wrote the song in a couple of weeks, focusing on the feelings of our imaginary artist as they go about their daily routines
