Dare to Dance: Contemporary Dance (over 55’s)


Taster Sessions: Beginners Wednesday 11 January, 4pm – 6pm | Ace Space, Newbury

Intermediate  Friday 20 January, 7pm – 8.30pm | Park House School, Newbury

Taster Sessions are £6.50 and must be booked in advance through the Corn Exchange Box Office 0845 521 8218 

An exciting new adult community dance project in partnership with John Darvell, Artistic Director of NOCTURN dance.

Over 6 weeks you can explore your creative and expressive side while improving your overall fitness and flexibility. Plus, the sessions are a great way to meet new people. Dare to Dance consists of two different groups. One tailored for those who are new to contemporary dance or have little previous experience and the second for those who have had some past experience. Both groups will be welcoming, accessible and challenging for each dancer and their body. Specifically for those over 55 years old.

John Darvell, who’s own professional journey into dance didn’t start until into his late 30’s, has spent the last 10 years encouraging and supporting adult dancers into dance. Want to know more? Come to one of our two informal taster sessions in January to try it out and meet the team.
