Re-Ignite 2023

An Integrated and Youth Dance Project Saturday 3rd June 2023 @Cultvr Cardiff

It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to this amazing venue, Cultvr and to our Re-Ignite performance. This is our second year here and we've brought the sunshine with us again! Today is the culmination of a very special project. Re-Ignite is funded by the Arts Council of Wales Lottery and we are hugely grateful to be able to deliver this unique project. Projects such as these, act as the seed bed for creative talent and give members of the community the chance to engage, excel and shine. 
The Re-Ignite project commissions professional dance artist to work collaboratively with our two flagship groups Monmouthshire Youth Dance Company (MYDC) and Monmouthshire Connected Dance Company (MCDC) The aim is to support and nurture creativity and provide opportunities to develop key dance, choreographic and performance skills.
Members of MCDC and MYDC lead the whole process shortlisting, auditioning and making the final selection, commissioning choreographers they feel inspired by to work with them to create new dance pieces. This year the groups have commissioned three dance artists, Elinor Lewis and Joe Garbett have worked with MCDC, Faye Stoeser has worked with MYDC. Both MYDC and MCDC have worked Alex and Kim aka; Live Action Cartoon. All of the pieces have been created collaboratively and all members are actively involved in the creative process.
The core of Dance Blast’s vision is to create of a welcoming and creative environment in which to ignite, nurture and cultivate the performing arts in all its forms from community to professional practice and to establish Monmouthshire as integral to the arts sector in Wales. We do this by nurturing individualsʼ artistic development, whether they are members of our community or professional artist. 
The Dance Blast team.
