Back once again at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham, local resident Creative Engagement director Selma Nicholls hosted a night of dance theatre including; Empotionz-UK, Uchenna Dance and Pair Dance.
Selma Nicholls, director of dance company Creative Engagement who run a dance studio at the Bernie Grant Arts centre in Tottenham, recently had news that the premises she runs her business from is soon to lose funding and she must find a new home, affecting many young people that use the studio for dance practice.
This event was therefore arranged as a fund raiser to help raise funds to relocate…the call for help went out, and dance crews all over responded, what we ended up with was a night of fantastic dance theatre, some of which blew me away. Hosted by Hakim Onibudo, director of Impact Dance UK and Performing on the night we had: Bird Gang, Uchenna, Ishimwa, E-Motionz, Carinne Gayle & Tashan Taylor, IronIncs and the night finished off with an amazing performance by Ballet Black.
Recent news has surfaced that the company may not have to relocate just yet, allowing more time to find a new home, watch this space, massive shout outs to all involved especially Selma for organising such a good event in so little time, all the dancers who responded to the calls for help! And everyone who turned up to support the night, much love.
