On Saturday 6th July 2013, young men and boys performed together at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, as part of the fourth year of Boys Dancing in Shropshire. Featuring over 100 participants, ‘Manitou’ was choreographed by professional dance artists in partnership with the participating boys, from Abraham Darby Academy, Alveley Primary, Bishop’s Castle Community College, Blessed Robert Johnson Catholic College, Clunbury Primary, Cheswardine Primary, Coleham Primary, Greenacres Primary, St George’s Primary and Whixhall Primary. Although 'Manitou' has already been performed, Boys Dancing activity is still continuing in Shropshire. We are currently working with young men from Stoke Heath prison - have a look at the Gallery for details.

Project Updates:

  • 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.
