Murderous insects, griffins and centaurs, strange creatures emerging in the woods by night … these are among our themes for the spring term of the English National Ballet’s Dance for Parkinson’s workshops. Our classes, based on the ENB’s current production, will explore the extraordinary dynamism of Jerome Robbins’ choreography for The Cage, depicting an all-female hive of insects, and the bizarre mythical menagerie of Aszure Barton’s Fantastic Beings. Plenty of food for imagination, dance and creativity from our wonderful participants, whose work on the DfP programme recently featured on the TV magazine series ‘Inside Out’.

In 2018 I’m teaming up with talented dance practitioner Danielle Teale to lead a weekend of workshops for Scottish Ballet, who plan to run a similar Dance for Parkinson’s programme in Glasgow.
