Dance Jam

Get back to what you love or try something new! You have been asking and finally we can reveal that Glass House Dance will be hosting regular dance sessions. To kick start we will be holding a series of tasters (see dates and times below).

Expect an uplifting, joyful dance class to great music. There will be an emphasis on finding freedom and expression in moving and getting a bit sweaty! This is a dance class with a difference and we can't wait to share it with you. It will also be an opportunity to tell us what YOU really want from a dance class and what times and days are best.

Taster Sessions:
Monday 28th January 9.30-10.30am
Thursday 31st January 11am-12pm
Friday 1st February 9.30-10.30am

A large part of the ethos and interest of Glass House Dance is offering opportunities for everyone to engage with dance as an artform. We often offer intergenerational dance workshops allowing people to create, dance and play with people of all ages.

Inside Glass House Workshops Inside Glass House is a playful look in to the workings of the company. It is open to anyone interested in how the body can be used as a vehicle for expression. We welcome dancers and other physical performers, professionals and non-professionals to come together to have fun, be bold, laugh and support each other in our creation process. The content of the workshops draw from past, current and future productions by the company, where participants can take part in guided practice, improvisations, choreographic tasks and discussion.

Including a special one-off social dance workshop, cabaret performances, live music from The Vagaband and dj’s spinning all sorts of dancing tunes. This was a fundraising event for GlassHouse, all proceeds were invested in the company allowing us to continue making exciting and engaging performances.

April 2014: Inside GlassHouse GlassHouse hosted a workshop for regional professional artists and members of The Garage’s performing groups at The Garage, Norwich in April 2014.

The workshop offered artists an exciting opportunity to develop their artistic practice and to learn the working methods of the company including class, improvisation, choreographic skills and discussion. By integrating both community dancers and professionals we aimed to challenge individuals in finding a collective vocabulary whilst maintaining individual integrity.

As regional dance practitioners, we wanted to connect with other physical performance artists of all ages (14yrs – 60yrs+) including performers from dance, theatre and circus backgrounds. The workshop was an opportunity to explore some of the themes and ideas that led to the creation of ‘You, Me & Everybody Else’.

August 2013: Space to Move In August 2013, we hosted a 3 day yoga and dance summer school In North Norfolk for adults over the age of 50. Our intention was to create an environment for creation, exploration and play. A space to take time and slow down in a beautiful location.

The aim was to facilitate an environment in which the dancers could achieve a state of flow and presence in which the aim is never to arrive at a future event, but to be ready and present in every changable moment.
We decided to host the summer school outside of Norwich for several reasons. We wanted to get out of the city! We both really enjoy being outdoors and in beautiful countryside; this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do it.

We are keen to take our work into communities rather than expect people to come and find us. We are also really keen to make more work for outdoor spaces so the more time we can spend working and creating in these environments the better.

There was another unforeseen outcome of taking our place of work to the beautiful village hall at Swanton Novers and this was the feeling of a retreat. Taking ourselves and the participants out of the hustling city and to a more secluded environment physically and metaphorically created space for ourselves to play and explore more freely. The ‘free’ time was spent together in the communal areas and in the glorious weather we were blessed with and as such, a lot of the ice breaking was done in these times too, making a close and cohesive group of individuals.
