Fixing it up for summer: a daily dose of dance!

20 July 2020

Get lost in a performance, take on a movement challenge and share in our favourite flashback moments, welcome to your dance fix for the next six weeks!

Whilst our studio remains closed for now, we invite you to stay connected to dance and all the wonderful things that dance can do, through our free online programme.

With something for everyone, we hope the programme uplifts, inspires, makes you think and makes you feel… because after all, a daily dose of dance, can go a very long way!

The Wonder of Dance

On Mondays, don’t miss Chameleon Recommends, our series of shout outs, highlighting our top picks of dance to checkout and watch online from the local and national dance community.

After the success of the first two Challenge Tuesdays’ series and some amazing responses shared by you from home, we bring you another set of weekly challenges inspired by Chameleon’s dancers and past works.

Get imaginative through dance and movement on your own, with friends or with your family.  Remember creativity knows no limits, so get moving and feeling good!

Wednesdays: until 26 August
With a focus on supporting the Greater Manchester professional dance community and nurturing the dance community on our doorstep, Pro-Wednesdays features and recommends classes for professionals and students to develop their practice.

With a mix of ways to train and develop, look out for the new Fitness for Dancers classes from FitLab led by our Associate Artist, Alice Bonazzi, along with Yoga for Dancers by the wonderful Kapow.

Theatre Thursdays

Absorb yourself in Chameleon’s world of dance theatre, as we shine a light on our individual productions in our third series of Theatre Thursdays. This time you can expect full performances, highlights, excerpts and never seen before archive material!

Flashback Fridays
Fridays: until 28 August
Join us and share in our favourite flashback moments, as we rewind and look back at memories from the last 12 years!

Plus, as we look ahead to the Chameleon Youth auditions in the Autumn, we will be sharing a shortlist of success stories from some of the amazing talent in our youth company. Look out for the stories on Saturdays over August.

Over the summer, you can also revisit our series of 12 Sunday Reads. From our Co-Artistic Director, Kevin, talking about the Black Lives Matter movement in the context of dance, to our Co-Artistic Director, Anthony, looking back at the risk and courage involved in making Gameshow, the collection features some great little reads with a personal voice. Find them in the news section here.
