Family Fridays Saddler's Wells

Sadler’s Wells is expanding Take Part, its series of projects available to the wider community, by presenting online workshops and activities for audiences to dance along to in their own homes. Available from Wednesday 1 April, workshops have been specially created to connect with younger children who are now unable to attend nursery or school, and older people staying at home. 

A family workshop created by Cherie Coleman, who runs Family Friday sessions at Sadler’s Wells, will feature 10 different movement activities for children aged two to six years to follow at home. There will also be workshops for older people aged over 60, inspired by Sadler’s Wells’ Company of Elders programme. These will be hosted by artists both in the UK and across the world, including Clara Andermatt, B.Dance, Lucia Caruso, Seeta Patel, Simona Scotto, Alessandra Seutin and New Adventures’ Resident Artist Paul Smethurst. These activities are coordinated by Sadler’s Wells’ Learning & Engagement team, with workshops available as YouTube playlists, which will remain online for audiences to access. 

Sadler’s Wells will also share dance films specifically created and choreographed for the screen. The series will include MADHEAD, a film directed by Ben Williams and choreographed by Botis Seva for National Youth Dance Company. 

Sadler’s Wells will also continue to share its own commissioned film content, offering insights into the incredible array of artists working with the dance house, showcasing new work and archived material, across social media channels.

Further details, including all titles, dates and screening times, will be announced and updated via this link on the Sadler’s Wells website: https://www.sadlerswells.com/whats-on/2020/digital-stage/
