Dancer Yamit Salazar and Eliot Smith of Eliot Smith Dance company, will be joining Highlights again for Dance workshops with some new Primary Schools in County Durham. In early November they will work with children at Burnopfield Primary School, Burnside Primary School and Oxhill Nursery School.
A critically acclaimed British dancer and choreographer, born in 1990 in Newcastle upon Tyne, Eliot Smith is the founder and creative director of Eliot Smith Dance (ESD). Eliot Smith Dance is proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture.
Eliot says “Dance is a universal language; it can transform lives; bring communities together; champions culture and heritage; and creates a space for inspiration to grow.”
