The Right Foot 2018 Presentation

Celebrating Dancers of All Abilities

Saturday 10 November – FREE!

After six weeks of contemporary dance workshops workshops specifically designed for dancers with various abilities and disabilities, DirtyFeet proudly presents the culmination of The Right Foot program for 2018 with its final performance on Saturday November 10 at Riverside Theatres.

DirtyFeet invite you to celebrate the achievements of these young people in presenting their performances as led by Adam Bowes and Brianna Kell in the workshops.

The Right Foot has been run since 2012, and involves participants from all backgrounds and experiences to their popular workshop series which focuses on creative dance and technique. The program is free and it is open to participants aged 14-26 with or without a disability. The program focuses on dance training, improving the health and wellbeing of participants, and is a confidence-building creative outlet. It provides a creative activity for those who may otherwise not have access to dance.

With the ongoing success of the program and the growing confidence and skills of participants, this year’s workshop will see participants apply skills learnt in performance studies at partner venue Riverside Theatres, Parramatta for the first time.

The Right Foot Program Manager, Melinda Tyquin says, “each year we have a cohort of returning participants and have been progressively able to build and develop their contemporary Dance technique and understanding of improvisational structures. We now want to give participants a performance setting to apply these skills, and see first-hand the impact theatrical elements make when creating movement.”

Brianna Kell, workshop facilitator says similarly, “In past years there has been a unanimous desire from participants for a performative stage experience, it’s really exciting that we are able to take our workshops and give people the opportunity to perform. Offering people theatre experience and training will open new prospects and exciting opportunities for everyone involved.”

DirtyFeet is committed to the professional development of young dancers with disability and passionate about finding ways for professional artists to give back to the community. They believe in the positive impact dance has on people’s lives – it is a creative way to improve health and fitness, encourage self-expression and build confidence.
