"Inspiring, such a high standard and to have it right here in front of us."
"So lovely, wonderful....taking the audience on a journey, a privilege to see it."
Quotes taken from Sterts Theatre Dance Discovery event audience members.

creative but not a dancer?
If you are a musician, writer, film-maker or artist there are many opportunities to be a part of the Physical Postcards.
Simply get in touch with your name and the art form you work in, where you are based and how you would like to get involved. For example you might be interested in creating some music to accompany a danced message, or simply a musical postcard which links to a landscape but doesn’t feature dance. Perhaps you lead an arts group and are keen to get some ideas as to how you can explore the theme of Physical Postcards; maybe you are interested in collaborating with a dancer as a film-maker, writer or costume designer.
one to one
We can work with you as an individual to help you choreograph your personal danced message. This message can be sent (danced) in an outside location of your choice and captured on film to be shared with others via our online Gallery.
Cost: £30 per session
We can come and work with your group, whether you are the WI, a youth group, Young Farmers Club, dance school or in a residential home, these sessions will be devised to suit your bespoke needs and offer a fun and creative chance to choreograph a Physical Postcard to share with others.
Cost: £45 per hour
These sessions will offer you ideas and creative movement to help you make your Physical Postcard – a danced message. As well as helping to develop your confidence in creating movement these sessions are also a great opportunity to meet with others. At the end of the course your Postcard can be filmed and added to our online gallery. For details of forthcoming sessions please see our Project Calendar.
