My team and I are all members of a street dance troupe.For us, dance is everything. It’s an activity that we love and it brings many benefits to our lives.It provides us with a way to express our emotions and appreciate our bodies. Another positive is being part of a really supportive group.
But, we feel there are people who view street dance negatively and judge us – especially if we’re performing in town.With Fixers, we want to challenge these perceptions.We hope to encourage others to view the activity in a more positive light, recognising the beneficial impact of street dance on those willing to give it a go.
Claire Greaves and Kara Herridge are helping me with this Fix.
Thanks also to Jessica Davies, Courtney Harvey, Leo Perham and Jessica Spear who are outside the 16-25 Fixers age range but have worked with us on this project.
