It looks like 2014 is definitely the year for dance in Milton Keynes - being located here myself, I am particularly eager to get behind the events taking place. As such, I thought I’d share a couple of initial opportunities to get involved and support some of the action headed our way:
First up, the deadline is fast approaching to apply to be one of the performers for ‘Under the Vaulted Sky’ choreographed by Rosemary Lee. This is an opportunity to perform as part of Milton Keynes International Festival alongside a whole host of spectacular events this summer. If you’re interested in getting involved, hotfoot it over to the IF website to download a form and return it by 5pm Friday 21st February.
If that’s not your bag (or even if it is but you want to dance in Milton Keynes as much as possible!) then look no further than MÓTUS – two days of dynamic dance performances, workshops and talks on 28th and 29th June. This festival is being artistically led by local choreographer Helen Parlor (who was assistant choreographer for the Paralympic Opening Ceremony in 2012) and plans are underfoot for an exciting programme. For the festival to go ahead some additional funding is required – take a look here. There are several different rewards on offer to be snapped up: access all tickets for the festival, first views of performance pieces in rehearsals and advertising space in the festival programme. If you can support then please do – let’s make this a dancing summer to remember in Milton Keynes!
