Bringing it home: our win of the Greater Manchester Award
Everyone in the Chameleon team would like to say the biggest of thanks for all the lovely and wonderful messages received following our award win at the national dance awards on Saturday.
It is a real honour to be recognised by One Dance UK and to have received the Greater Manchester Award, which recognises an organisation or individual who has made a significant impact to dance in Greater Manchester.
The award follows on from our 12-year history in Greater Manchester performing, creating and developing dance.
Co-Artistic Director, Kevin Edward Turner said: “I feel hugely proud to have won this award. It’s amazing to be given recognition for all the wonderful work the Chameleon team does. When Anthony and I set-up the Company in Manchester 12 years ago, it felt like dance was at a low ebb. Over the years the dance ecology has developed in a myriad of ways and I’m proud that we’ve contributed to this growth.”
Co-Artistic Director, Anthony Missen said: “The nomination recognises Chameleon as one of the catalysts for dance development in Greater Manchester, which is amazing. From the outset of Chameleon, we aspired to have an impact on dance regionally, and over the years, we’ve worked towards this through our performances, advocacy work and growing workshop programme. A thriving dance community is now developing here, which looking back, we’ve helped grow. For this I’m really proud.”
Thanks to everyone who has supported the Company over the years, we know many of you have been there since the beginning!
We look forward to continuing the work we do and bringing you more dance theatre, made with love, from our home city of Manchester.
