Dancer passes on her skills to youngsters

A famous dance artist and choreographer has been working with students in south east Northumberland.

Creative director Alison Walton-Robson said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Jane, who is such an amazing artist.

“Headway Arts is developing Satellites: Dance, a new dance company for learning disabled dancers in Northumberland and this is a unique opportunity to train with this very skilled and talented international artist.

“We aim to offer our community the highest quality arts opportunities possible – ambitious and something a little bit different – this is just that, an opportunity possibly unexpected in Blyth.

“This is one of the great projects helping us to celebrate our 20th anniversary year big style.”

The Satellites: Dance programme also includes weekly workshops in creative arts, theatre and drama and is part of Headway Arts’ New Worlds Project, awarded £47,171 by Arts Council England to provide arts opportunities to disadvantaged people in Northumberland.
