OUR DANCING FEET – True, and not so true tales from the dancefloor…

Type
A multi-partnership arts/heritage project with an intergenerational programme of community outreach activities and educational workshops leading to a multi-disciplinary site-specific performance event with dance, theatre, projections and soundscapes.
Description
