Our VISION for the Hebden Bridge Dance Festival in October

"We Came To Dance"

2 minute video about why we are here - and the importance to dance.
"We began with rhythm. From the beating of our mother’s heart to the first kick in our mother’s womb. We were born to move.
‘We Came To Dance’ combines this rhythm that we all share, with the rhythm of music, dance and an epic piece of spoken word" [produced by New York based Tasha Blank]
