Through & Out: Skipping Extravaganzza. Elderly.


Through & Out: Skipping Extravaganza (‘T&O:SE’) is a very exciting cross-over between sport and dance. The project involves dance professionals and community groups in an extremely complex, yet very simple dance game. T&O:SE pushes the dancers to employ their full concentration, rhythm and physicality; while rope-skipping the participants will create choreographic scores and patterns.

T&O:SE is designed to:
• Learn internationally recognised contemporary dance methodologies that encourage kinship and teamwork through movements and imagination.
• Improve physical capacities, rhythm and coordination
• Use spatial awareness and intuition to adjust and create new movements
• See dance and perform in non-traditional spaces
• Gain self confidence and control of emotions
• Learn new approaches to engage audiences
