Lockdown… Many of us have experienced our own journeys through lockdown, whether this be a positive or negative journey. Carly Allen of Vital Signz Dance has joined forces with choreographers to create a video to express each individual’s own experience of LockDown through Dance and Movement.
Choreographers: Carly Allen, Jodie Axcell, Sharn Baig-Brown, Josh Smith, Dan Morrissey, Libby Ash-Brazier, Shannon Barker, Dear You – Choreography by Nicole Jux and Vital Signz Dance
Carly Allen won the IYAF’s Dance Award last year for her hip hop theatre production of ‘The Wizards Tale’ performed by Vital Signz Dance (based in Kingston Upon Thames). Carly is now creating and working with various choreographers who all work within the industry and do a great amount of work within their communities for Youth Dance. During Lockdown Carly and the choreographers have been focusing on keeping the communities dancing, keeping them fit and sustaining positivity throughout these uncertain times.
