If you enjoy dancing and creating your own moves around the kitchen, living room or bedroom, then this is the project for you!

Home Made is Dance Umbrella’s first ever digital dance residency available to a range of ages. Over five days, each Home Made group will work with a world-class choreographer to explore, play and create their own brand-new choreography.

The Home Made groups will include:

Youth (11-17yrs) working with choreographer Satchie Noro

Adults (18yrs+) working with choreographer Annie-B Parson

Adults (60yrs+) working with choreographer Kenrick Sandy

Join in from the comfort of your own home via secure Zoom meetings (set up support available) and don’t miss your opportunity to be part of a final film showcasing the project that will be created throughout your residency.

It’s free to take part and no previous dance experience is necessary.
