@BFM90 @BoysDancing Great meeting! Boys Dancing Dudley is underway.
@BoysDancing meet today checking out wednesbury town hall. A gentle #chacha drifts from the #linedance class
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.
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.
We hope you enjoy the new site. Have a look round, make yourself at home.
“One boy, who is severely autistic , has been completely changed by boys dance. Other boys now respect him for what he can do, and he has gained the confidence to go up on stage. He has asked to attend outside groups, which he would not do before, and has joined a local breakdance crew. He has been able to develop a social circle he did not have before.”
