Farnham Carnival June 2016

The Dance Movement were excited to be a part of Farnham Town Council’s 2016 Carnival on Saturday 25th of June. Following the theme of Fairy tales, The Dance Movement worked in partnership with Matthew Bourne’s Rebourne, New Adventures to deliver a fairy tale themed workshop based upon repertoires from Sleeping Beauty. The Dance Movement further joined with our Maltings neighbours, Stopgap Dance Company to provide an inclusive Contemporary workshop, allowing audiences a sneak-preview of works that were to be performed at Farnham in Bloom. Despite the heavens opening, TDM’s youth dance company Coalesce along with members of the public danced through the rain, chasing away the clouds.

Following workshops Artistic Director, Rachel Palmer, led the youth dance company Coalesce in a performance as part of the carnival’s procession on Farnham Town Council’s Farnham in Bloom float. TDM partnered with Rebourne, Stopgap Dance Company and Farnham Town Council, with artist Rachel Palmer.
