We were grateful to have been invited to the 20th anniversary celebrations of @sadlers_wells
& to see ‘Reckonings’, a triple bill featuring choreography by Julie Cunningham, Botis Seva, & Alesandra Seutin. We brought a group of 20 young people including past and present company members to watch the show. The dancers were particularly inspired by BLKDOG by #BotisSeva
) & ‘Boy Breaking Glads’ by @alesandravocabseutin.
Both very different but incredibly powerful pieces. The impact for these dancers to see such amazing work that also featured dancers and choreographers that look like them, & on such a high profile stage, is not something that can be measured. Representation matters. We encourage our students to aim high, pursue a range of dance styles, & to not limit yourself as nothing is beyond your reach. It’s part of why we do what we do. Showcase, celebrate, and encourage young dancers of African & Caribbean dance to achieve success through dance. Thank you to everyone involved in this magical evening ✨✨✨✨
