Each week EncoreEast share their thoughts, feelings, struggles and joys as we engage with RMDC’s technique and creative process. So, it seems important to write collectively, combining our voices to share our experience of the first two sets of live workshops with Edd Arnold and Alethia Antonia.
EncoreEast is a performance company of mature dancers based in the East of England.
Until 2020 we were managed by Dance East. When the pandemic struck and they could no longer support us, the tentative suggestion to become an independent dance company quickly grew into a reality.
EncoreEast celebrates the individuality of each member of the group, their unique dance history and movement signature. We want to dance together and continue growing and developing independently and as a company. Through collaboration, we are forging connections with artists, dancers, choreographers and teachers.
This is just the beginning of our journey of discovery, and we are excited to see where it will take us. We are slowly emerging out of the darkness of the pandemic into a brighter future, embracing every opportunity that comes our way.
