New News for 2016!

So the last few years have been an amazing whirlwind of projects, performing, creating, teaching, producing, researching, planning, training and business development. It's been busy to say the least! During the whirlwind I've been incredibly brilliant at completely neglecting this blog with any news updates, but it feels like with some incredible projects in the pipeline for this year I should start updating it again a little more regularly with quick links to be able to get tickets and info about the amazing work happening this year across Cornwall.

So here it goes...a few bits of info below about what I've been up to lately!


Simon Birch Dance Company Shoreline

We've just completed the first two weeks of rehearsals, and will be back in June ready for the shows in July! Follow the company on this facebook page to see some behind the scenes pictures. We also made the front cover of Animated magazine this month, with a featured article by Dramaturge Ruth Pethybridge. Look out for the performances via the company website here www.simonbirchdance.com

Freefall Dance Summer Intensive 2016



Freefall have just launched our Summer Intensive, with early bird tickets now on sale! With a jam packed two days of technical classes being delivered by artists including Nikki O'Hara, Luke Birch, James Wilton and Charlotte Eatock it's going to be the perfect way to develop physical training and meet some fantastic people over the weekend - as well as being able to unwind at the end of each day with some food and refreshments with a sea view. Perfect.
