About the Workshop
The workshop will support artists in developing dance material suitable for leading dance sessions for older people. The emphasis is on creativity and generating artistic ideas and new movement tasks that encourage every participant to explore and experiment with his/her own creativity.

Green Candle Dance's main objective is to provide dance experiences to those with least access to it, within both educational and community settings. Established by Artistic Director Fergus Early, Green Candle Dance sets out to explore, through dance, some of the most challenging human issues we face as individuals, as communities and as a society. As well as creating productions that include participatory workshops and educational resources, the company also delivers Inset and Professional Development courses on leading dance with Older People and Early Years for participants with or without disabilities.

Artistic Director Fergus began his dancing career with the Royal Ballet, later studying at the London Contemporary Dance School where he became a senior teacher. He was a founder member of X6 Dance Space and New Dance magazine. Fergus is the winner of several awards, including a Greater London Arts Dance Award, a Lisa Ullman Traveling Bursary, the Time Out/Dance Umbrella Award for Outstanding Artistic Achievement and a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship. In 2010 he was awarded an OBE for his contribution to dance and In 2011 he was made an Honorary Doctor of Arts by De Montfort University, Leicester.
