Meta4Dance have been working with us as an All Year Round Artist, for the first time this season. They are recent recipients of Arts Council England funding for their new family dance football piece, Jumpers for Goalposts. Based in Northumberland, Meta4Dance are currently working on a series of workshops with Better Days, for adults with Learning Disabilities, in Newcastle.
We’re always grateful to receive feedback from the schools they’ve visited in Cumbria, County Durham and Northumberland this Autumn Term.
“The children most enjoyed the opportunity to dance together and explore the variety of movements the dancers demonstrated.”
“Children developed skills in dance beyond the work they do with a class teacher.”
“The dances learnt will be incorporated into the Christmas performance for parents and the community.”
“The children benefited from the exercise and laughter.”
“We were attracted to the workshop as it links to the national curriculum.”
“Children enjoyed performing different moves and joining in as a group.”
“The quality of the teaching was good and the interaction with participants was excellent.”
“The children enjoyed being active and engaged in contemporary dance moves.”
“The children thought it was good fun and challenging.”
