Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire based FRONTLINEdance, is privileged to work with people of all ages and all abilities in a wide and diverse range of settings and environments. We create, move, dance and perform with 3 to 103 year olds from beginners to professionals.
Our focus is dance, disability & older people, but we also provide opportunities and access to art, media, music and drama, striving to target those who would not normally have the opportunity to take part.
The purpose of the group is to increase self-esteem, confidence, teamwork skills and inspiration, to raise awareness of what is possible and promote positive responses to both disability and to dance.
Creating new dance work with disabled children, young people, adults and older people is something that we have loved doing over the last 14 years. We’ve enjoyed integrating different class groups and schools together and being inspired by the participant’s creativity and performance skills. These creations have resulted in film work, site specific performances, performing in theatres, schools and community settings.
The company also performs in a wide-range of settings; locally, regionally & nationally. We officially set up as not-for- profit company back in 2001, and we’ve been kept busy collaborating and working with some wonderful partners ever since.
FRONTLINEdance Ltd was founded by Rachael Lines and Michael King.
