Blooming Dance Dress Rehearsal

Perins

Wow, what a day!  Farnham you truly bloomed!

Sunday 5th July was the ‘big day’, where The Dance Movement bought together a company of 150 dancers from Farnham schools and local community groups to rehearse the dance, Farnham Blooming.  The background and idea behind the project can be read about by clicking on our blog post.

 

An awful lot of project planning, costume and dance making went into making this day a real success and this post is a really a shout out and thank you to all have been involved so far on this journey.

This was the first partnership project The Dance Movement had undertaken with Farnham Town Council on an event of this nature and it has been a truly enjoyable collaboration to help celebrate the 25th year of Farnham in Bloom.  A special thank you to Kevin Taitt, Julie Jackson and Lara Prior at Farnham Town Council, the project would have not gone half as smoothly without your support.
