Sharon Davis is forming a swing dance troupe in 2017! This group will be focused on creative projects for stage and film, and doing interesting collaborations with other London and international artists. The goal is to make beautiful art with jazz music and dance! What shape these projects take will depend on the particular group of artists we gather together. Does that mean you?
Joining the group will be on a voluntary basis to start with, with members making a small contribution towards weekly rehearsal space costs or helping with fundraising efforts to cover troupe costs. The ultimate aim will be to make the troupe self-sustaining and eventually profit-making, so that members do not pay to be involved, but are indeed paid for their artistic work. But as we grow to that stage, members must be willing to donate their time and contribute in this small way.
We are tentatively intending weekly rehearsals to be held on Thursday evenings, but this may change.
Sharon is calling for expressions of interest from Swing, Charleston, Jazz or Tap dancers based in London. We’d also love to hear from anyone who would like to be involved in any capacity whatsoever, or who has a related skill to offer (jazz singer, photographer, musician, filmmaker, costume designer, choreographer, director, scriptwriter, actor, PR, arts fundraising, moral support).
