MiW- Nelken Line
https://vimeo.com/361001344, We are so very excited that our "Nelken" dance video has been accepted to be shown by the Pina Bausch Foundation - Productions GmbH! This was a glorious project to participate in. Our dancers were challenged and inspired, and we all had a great time in the developmental process and then with the final stage. Everyone was having fun and learning as we went along. Dance is so very powerful and what an honour it was to get to do a section of "Nelken!"
Thanks to Ioanna Bili for the initiative and the work, thanks also to teachers Beatrice Ghezzi, Chris Christodoulou, and huge thanks to all who participated and supported it!
And of course, deep thanks to Pina Bausch for creating this in the first place! Have a look! Please share as well, and enjoy, and enjoy the other submissions too!
Annual Fundraising Dance Showcase
7th July, 2019, Watermans Arts Centre, 2pm
Our fourth annual dance showcase raising funds for MiW was a resounding success! We thank all the performers, our teachers, volunteers, and MiW trustees who assisted every step of the way. It took a huge amount of effort, organisation, planning, and hard work and was well worth it! What a joy to embrace this great achievement together for our community!
We are proud recipients of an Atul Pathak Community Award 2019!
On 19 June at The House of Commons, we received this esteemed award from Mr. Atul Pathak OBE. This not only helps to raise awareness of our important work with dance for the community, but also the monetary award helps to ensure the future delivery of our classes. We are very grateful and look forward to our year-long corporate partnership and to the projects that will be developed along the way.
