#Dance Matters To Me: Open School Platform

Secondary School’s Dance Open Platform

Does your school have a solo, duet/trio and a group dance piece to perform? #Dance Matters To Me is an exciting new open dance platform for Secondary Schools. This platform was designed and produced by professional dance artists who are passionate about providing a professional performing opportunity for schools and pupils. We hope this event will develop each schools dance identity and provide a fantastic dance experience for pupils nationwide. #Dance Matters To Me is a platform which will be available across the country and broken down into localised events.

How it works…..
Each school can submit up to 3 pieces of dance, choreographed by either the teachers/local choreographers or the pupils themselves.

The categories which you can apply…..
1)Solo’s 2)Duets/Trios and 3)Group Pieces. Out of the 3 pieces you have applied (one piece per category), 2 pieces will be chosen per school.

This is a chance for young, local and talented dancers to showcase and perform works outside of their school and at a professional theatre. 10 different schools will be chosen each night.

This production is produced and hosted by Adam Towndrow of C-12 Dance Theatre, a National Touring Company.

#Dance Matters To Me kicks off at The Sandpit Theatre March 17th and 18th 2012. Special Guest performance by Delve Dance Company (, a London based contemporary dance company.

ISAN Adventures in Scotland

C-12 travelled to Scotland on Tuesday evening Nov 16th. Our destination was Glasgow!

After checking in at the Jury's Inn hotel we brushed up on our pitch before heading to the Scottish Modern Art Gallery for a drinks reception. After a couple of glasses we joined artists and producers into a coach which took us to an old church for dinner. Adam went for haggis!! Introducing ourselves to a new network of people that were on our table, the evening was going well.

The lovely 3 course meal included wine which was dutch courage for some.

Wed Nov 17th, Annie and Adam headed to the Young Scottish Theatre in the city centre to set up our table (see picture). Lavishing our stand with posters, pictures, videos and of course a hazard tape/washing line. We introduced our The Van Man production to producers, artists, production companies and festivals from around the country. Overall it was a great success and we have made some fantastic new contacts. There were so many supportive and passionate artists which has made this trip an extremely pleasant one.


Looking forward to next year.
