An innovative dance company is inviting Surrey residents along to Camberley Theatre on Wednesday 17 July to witness a unique performance that celebrates diversity through creative dance.
The Surrey Choices Rhythmic Collision Dance Company and children from Cordwalles Junior School have teamed up to create ‘Rhythm of Life IV’, an ensemble of dance choreography that explores important life issues like pride, love, change, family and friendship.
Helen-Louise Lampard, Senior Activities Facilitator at Rhythmic Collision Dance Company, said,
Rhythm of Life IV will not only celebrate the medium of dance and music, but will also showcase the friendships that have flourished over the years between the school children and Surrey Choices customers.
The children have gained invaluable experiences and have been given the opportunity to better understand the complexity of learning disabilities and inspired them to break down barriers within their own communities.
The dancers have been free to create their own contemporary style of dance both individually and in a supportive group environment. The project has helped the performers to understand the importance of teamwork, in addition to developing their self-esteem and improving their physical fitness and coordination.
Managing Director of Surrey Choices, Mette Le Jakobsen, said,
“It is incredibly exciting to see intergenerational work being delivered in such a creative and inclusive way. Surrey Choices is all about reaching out and working with local communities to bring about change and Rhythmic Collision and the children of Cordwalles Junior School have done just that.”
Sarah Nottrodt, Head Teacher at Cordwalles Junior School, said,
“Rhythm of Life gives our children the opportunity to understand that everybody is different and has their own challenges to overcome. This performance portrays that through dance and promotes our belief that there are no outsiders in our school. The children show kindness and compassion through their dance and develop skills that will stay with them throughout their lives.”
The show is set to take place at Camberley Theatre on Knoll Road on Wednesday 17th July 2019 between 7pm – 8:30pm. Tickets are available to the public from the box office on 01276 707600 and cost £8.50 for adults, £7.50 for children, or £28 for a family of four*.
