Winchester Big Dance 2012 Commission Are you interested in…….. Working with a professional choreographer? Gaining an insight into how to make work for site specific projects? Being part of a large scale outdoor celebratory dance event? Keeping active over the Summer? Hampshire Dance still has a few places available for dancers to work with a established choreographer Bettina Strickler to create a site-specific dance performance for this year's Hat Fair in Winchester as part of Big Dance 2012. Bettina is an independent choreographer and ex Co-Director and performer with Protein Dance. The project is open to 3rd Year Students, recent graduates and dance artists. She will work with the group to create a new piece of dance to be performed in the outdoor spaces by the Great Hall and old castle in Winchester. Your performance will be part of a whole day of dance and street art that will celebrate the sheer quality and diversity of dance in the region. The event is part of a nation-wide response to Big Dance and Cultural Olympiad initiatives and will take place in collaboration with Winchester Hat Fair on Saturday 7 July. Rehearsals will be in Winchester from Monday 2 July to Friday 6 July from 10am – 4pm each day. To be part of this project please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Please include a short description of your dance experience and a statement to confirm that you can attend all rehearsals and the performance day.
