Quicksilver Dance Company will be celebrating five years of dance making and performance with their new show ‘Take Five!’ at Cranleigh Arts Centre on Sunday 20th October 2019 at 3pm.
‘Take Five’ features a selection of classic dance pieces from Quicksilver’s five year history, as well as showcasing several new works, including ‘Gone, Gone, Gone’: a tribute to the iconic music of the Everly Brothers.
Quicksilver Dance Company aims to celebrate life through dance, to entertain, and to encourage dance for all ages, highlighting the great benefits of dancing in later life: improved health and strength, personal expression, sociability and fun. The Quicksilver dancers range in age from fifty-something to eighty-something, and all have had many years of dance training. In 2017 they were delighted to welcome actress Celia Imrie as Quicksilver Patron.
“With their energy and artistry, Quicksilver prove that dancing in later life can be beautiful, dynamic and fun!” – Celia Imrie, Actress and Quicksilver Patron
For anyone who would like a sneak preview of Quicksilver’s new work, the company will be holding a dance workshop for adults on Saturday 12th October from 10am to 1pm at Cranleigh Arts Centre. Led by Ingrid Kottler, a former Principal Dancer with Cape Town City Ballet and Quicksilver’s director and choreographer, Angela Hardcastle, the workshop is suitable for adults of any age, from 18 to 80, who have enjoyed dance classes in the past and who would like to return to the many rewards of dancing. After a gentle ballet class, participants will have the opportunity to learn some simple repertoire from Quicksilver’s forthcoming show. “It was a unique way of spending a Saturday morning and we all benefitted from Angela and Ingrid’s patient encouragement and infectious enthusiasm! For me, the workshop was indeed a celebration of the joy experienced from reconnecting with dance…and this is exactly what the Quicksilver Dance Performance Group is all about.” – Alisa Richardson-Jones (workshop participant).
Tickets for the show and the workshop are available from Cranleigh Arts Centre box office on 01483 278000 or via their website cranleighartscentre.org
