The National Theatre of Scotland is delighted to announce details of Reasons to Dance, a major new arts project in Falkirk combining stories of social dancing with drama, music and visual art in events across the town from September 2011, and culminating in March 2012 with a major theatrical event.
As part of the project, the National Theatre of Scotland is looking for groups and individuals of all ages throughout the Falkirk Council area to share their stories of social dancing. From dance halls to discos, from quickstep to dubstep, all stories of social dancing will be welcomed.
Hundreds of community members and local groups will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of ways from participating in workshops to sharing their own stories and creating or performing in events throughout the seven month project.
Collected material and tales will be used to shape the project and inspire the creation of the final theatre production in March 2012.
Members of the Falkirk community will be able to connect with the project in locations around the town. Interested individuals and groups can also share their reasons to dance by posting comments on our dedicated Facebook page.
Or you can tell us you own reasons to dance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can attend series of free, public events are taking place around Falkirk, starting at Howgate Shopping Centre during the week of 17th October 2011. More details will be available here and from our Facebook page in the coming weeks.
Created in partnership with Falkirk Community Trust and sponsored by ScottishPower.
