To all the fabulous and talented groups that help to make ‘Lest We Forget’ the spectacular that it is, I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU!
Without you - the committed and talented performers, the show would not be the possible. I also want to say thank you to the hard working fabulous group leaders, chaperones and choreographers. Tameside and I are truly lucky to have such talent in the borough that is nurtured by such inspirational leaders, each one of you truly realises the importance of providing performance opportunities, showcasing work, and sharing creativity, valuing and appreciating the true power of our art form – DANCE. This show is a good example of how Dance can educate, inform, entertain, support and help. Working together, as a community, alongside our supporters made up of family, friends and enthusiasts makes ‘Lest We Forget’ a true success. From the bottom of my heart I THANK YOU! I am immensely proud watching former Ashton Sixth Form, A Level Dance and Performing Art students leading, choreographing and running groups. It is rewarding to observe your success and achievement. Watching you pass on your creativity, passion and experience to the next generation is gratifying and seeing how you have developed as artists is rewarding and fulfilling. Tameside Veterans are always highly impressed and very grateful - £1,006.00 raised. Thank you for your energy, time, talent and support ❤️
Forever Dance. Tamzin x

TYDC SENIORS LITTLE RUNAWAY PRO

🤎 L I T T L E R U N A W A Y 🤎

The 3rd and final video to share... performed by Torque Seniors and choreographed collaboratively by Kaireen McDonald, Emma Kelly and Aimee Midgley 🌟

Filmed and edited by Adam Nisbet.

For anyone looking for an alternative experience to performing on stage I would 100% recommend Adam ... he was fantastic to work with and as you can see the end products have been outstanding.

Just look at the team work that's going on in this performance. This group have lots of different backgrounds in dance, come up through various schools and academies but when they come together to dance something magical happens! They love to dance TOGETHER. Nothing beats that feeling of dancing along side your friends 🥰

Well done to all involved 🌟

TYDC SENIORS GOLDWATCH 2021

🌟🎞 Now it's the Seniors turn! 🎞🌟

They got to film two pieces over two Wednesday evenings. Double the amount of work but they most certainly did not disappoint!!!!

It's crazy to think that this group have only got to rehearse together for a tiny fraction of the amount of weeks this Torque year.

Amazing choreo from Emma Kelly and such a clean edit from Adam Nisbet!

Here's GOLDWATCH ... enjoy and share away 🖤

💜 TYDC JUNIORS PRESENT 💜

~ T H I S ~ I S ~ R E A L ~

We don't often share full pieces on social media but with performing live on stage not being an option the dancers managed to experience "dancing for the camera" to create a dance-for-film for the first time!

It was a fantastic experience they worked for two Wednesday evenings (just two hours in total) with the incredible Adam Nisbet who has recorded and edited this footage.

The piece has been choreographed by Torque Senior Aimee Midgley who stepped in to work with the new junior company whilst I was on maternity leave. What a fantastic job she has done!

I have to say the dancers performances are STUNNING and it just goes to show that even with everything that's been thrown at our younger generation this past year they have bounced back stronger 🙌🏻

We hope you enjoy & please share share share!

🖤

Something has happened in this last year which is very very special. Ellie you have blossomed into the most fun, unique and charismatic person.
