New: Striking Attitudes Spring Classes and Opportunity to Perform

Our new classes will be held every Wednesday at Chapter Arts Centre from 18th February – 25th March and again from 15th April – 6th May. 6.45pm – 8.45pm. It will cost £100 for the entire term

The 10 creative community dance and movement classes will take place from February to April, culminating in a performance (optional). The classes will be led by dance professionals Caroline Lamb (Artistic Director/ Choreographer of Striking Attitudes) and Janet Fieldsend (Rehearsal Director Striking Attitudes).

The emphasis of all Striking Attitudes dance classes is always on the creative aspect of movement. “We believe in working with movement that highlights the specific qualities of the older dancer, using movement that comes naturally from the older body,” says Caroline Lamb.

Striking Attitudes community dance classes are very accessible to all dancers including those who have never danced before.

Striking Attitudes is a professional dance company working specifically with older dancers, both professional and community based. We celebrate the particular skills of the older dancer, and work to raise awareness of opportunities for older dancers and to challenge public perception of ageing.

We believe the older performer can bring something very particular to a creative work; an inner strength that comes from a wealth of life experience and equally, a fragility and vulnerability that is both honest and life affirming. The older dancer provides a positive role model and is a fine example of what is possible as we age.
