Gelabert Residency November 2011 'Uncommon'
Edinburgh International Festival invited Spanish dance company Gelabert Azzopardi to host a nine day workshop at Dance Base in Edinburgh during November and December 2011.
Gelabert Azzopardi is a leading Spanish company based in Barcelona. Directors Cesc Gelabert and Lydia Azzopardi, plus two company members, came to Edinburgh and worked with professional (or ex-pro) dancers aged 50 and above, trained in contemporary or ballet, to explore ways to expand and develop practice.
Virginia (in action above ) was thrilled to take part - two weeks being a dancer again!
She hopes very much we can make our own creative environment for older dancers in Cumbria - Eden Dance Collegium - not 'Uncommon' for older dancers to dance, but acceptable and valued. Thanks to Ludus Dance in Lancaster for their weekly professional dance class - life-saver!
