January 2011 update



Conversations continue with Midlands Arts Centre and MENCAP - the partnership developing the plans for a 2012 Cultural Olympiad themed Dance Festival with and for people with Learning Difficulties. Subject to successful funding bids, we are all really excited about the creative possibilities this can offer FreeFall, and the wider Birmingham community.

At Birmingham Royal Ballet's studios on 4 February 2011, Freefall will be hosting the University of Birmingham, leading a teacher training workshop with final year PGCE PE students.

In January and February, FreeFall are reviving September Reflections, one of the Company's early dance pieces. This will be filmed and form a part of an NHS training resource which looks at adapting communication for people with learning difficulties. This project builds on a relationship we have with the Department of Occupational Therapy at Coventry University.

Following a well received lecture demonstration at a Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) Conference in November, FreeFall will be performing and running sessions at the next SSAT Community Arts Coordinator conference at the Birmingham Hippodrome on 29 March.

In the meantime rehearsals continue for two performances of FreeFall's newest creation: Seaside Rendezvous - A Tribute to Freddie Mercury. On 16 March at 1pm, FreeFall will perform to an invited audience of school and University students. The 15 March 7.30pm performance will be open to the public.

UPDATE: Tickets are now available from the Hippodrome Box Office priced at 6. Phone 0844 338 5000 to secure your seats.

Lee Fisher, Head of Creative Learning.
