Black Country

The Black Country has been involved with Boys Dancing since 2009, with regional artists creating some amazing work in theatres and site-specific locations including Fort Dunlop in Birmingham - our location for one of the Quiet Man Suite dance films. For the first time, 2013-2014 activity brings together Sandwell and Dudley under the umbrella of the Black Country Dance Hub (BCDH).

Project Updates:

  • A catharsis in Dudley

    Like some of the other areas involved in Boys Dancing, our rehearsals won't start for another couple of months. We're excited though, because for the last project the boys of Dudley made a beautiful film: 'Catharsis' as part of The Quiet Man Suite.

  • Boys Dancing performance needs a home

    In Sandwell, our rehearsals haven't started yet, but we've already hit a hurdle, which is that The Public is sadly closing its doors to... the public, on 30th November this year. This is a real shame as it's been a great venue for Boys Dancing performances in previous years. While we're trying to find a home for our current project, why don't you have a look at 'XY' - which was performed in The Public in 2010. It's featured in this video round-up of Boys Dancing work 2009-2010.

  • Hello new website!

    The fact that you're reading this suggests that you have, in fact, discovered the latest bit of Boys Dancing news. Which is that we have a new website! We wanted to really be able to show off all the fantastic images and videos that have come out of the project over the past few years, so we've added the visuals to almost every page. We hope you agree, it really showcases the brilliant work done by the boys and the professional dancers over the last six years.

    There's also the Gallery. Here we've started to collate pictures and videos from Boys Dancing activity past and present. It's not 100% complete at the moment, but we'll be adding more pictures and videos as we go along.

    There's also the exciting 'Just Dance' section, which is specifically for boys: those who have and who are taking part in the project. Or are maybe just interested in dance. Here you'll find some videos of male dancers if you're after a bit of inspiration, or some Spotify playlists to get you in the mood for shaking your funky stuff.

    There's space to comment on Just Dance (or on the blog), so if you've got any suggestions as to other things you'd like to see there, please get in touch.

    We hope you enjoy the new site. Have a look round, make yourself at home.
