Latest News from Dance Re:Ignite

The current phase of Dance Re:Ignite activity came to an abrupt end in March 2020 but we still have lots to celebrate.  Over the last eighteen months we have hosted 73 workshop sessions and performances, that has reached more than 4,000 people as participants and audience members.  A special thank you to all the artists and partner organisations that made this happen.

Dance Re:Ignite was made possible by an Arts Council England Project Grant.  Additional support from: Hertfordshire Music Service, Welwyn Hatfield Council, Watford Borough Council, Dacorum Borough Council and local County Councillor Locality Budget and Community budget support.  We are also hugely grateful for the support from our partners – Hertfordshire Sports Partnership, Dacorum Community Dance, The Old Town Hall in Hemel Hempstead, Saracens Sports Foundation and Watford Museum.
