In response to the current government guidelines the majority of DanceEast Officers will primarily be working from home, and the Jerwood DanceHouse will not be open to the public for the time being. We continue to monitor the situation and will respond to changes appropriately.
The Jerwood DanceHouse might be temporarily closed, but we haven’t stopped dancing, and you don’t have to either! Take a look at our online offer – dance with us in live zoom classes, stream performances straight to your home and find out more about what our friends are presenting.
It has been very difficult to know how best to respond to the shocking event in America and the inspiring Global reaction that followed. We have been using this time to reflect as we are critically aware that we need to take responsibility for our actions and indeed, any lack of action in the past.
We have embarked in a dialogue with artists and peers across and beyond the arts and cultural sector to understand how we can best contribute to combatting systemic racism. We therefore take this opportunity to state that we support the Black Lives Matter movement and we understand that we should be judged on how we champion change and meet the challenges ahead.
