About Dance Picnic

Dance Picnic is an opportunity for people of all ages to take part in dance and movement sessions together! No-one is too young or too old.

The project stems from the company's busy participation programme which regularly sees parents, toddlers, children, young adults, elderly and people with disabilities dancing. Artistic Director Steve Batts wanted to see these groups come together and enjoy dance and movement as a group.

This event is a chance to participate in some dancing and movement games within an open space where people can join in when they wish. You can come alone or bring a friend or family member - everyone is welcome. And bring some food for the Picnic!

I loved the Dance Picnic. It was surprisingly good fun to take part in the movement games. As an adult, I always assume games are for the children but it was extremely freeing and thoroughly enjoyable to dance with everyone.
