ArtSpeak Dance Workshops - Cool Company

Cool Company is a dance improvisation ensemble for people aged 60+ 

Delivered by choreographer and movement specialist Deane McQueen, sessions are radical in method and approach. 

Using improvisation techniques in a fun and sociable environment, you're invited to come together to experience how we imagine, watch, think, share and move in our everyday lives. 

No prior dance or movement experience is required. This is a great space to be experimental, release your inhibitions and meet new people. Just bring your sense of imagination and fun!


A safe, warm atmospheric environment in 'The Space' at Nottingham Contemporary awaits.
When: 30 August, 6, 13, 20 & 27 September. 10:00 - 12:00
Cost: £35 to cover all five sessions


(We are offering a small number of free spaces to people who would not otherwise be able to attend due to the barrier of cost. To apply for a funded space, please contact Hannah Stoddart - artspeak@radfordcaregroup.org.uk)


We will be holding a FREE introductory session on Tuesday 23 August, 10:00 - 12:00 where we invite you to come along to the gallery to meet with Deane and other members. You’ll have chance to explore the current exhibition together and consider what you could take from it to inspire the work you will collectively create if you decide to sign up for the sessions.


The first phase of workshops took place in Spring 2022, this new phase of workshops is open to all, no prior participation is required.
What to wear: Loose and comfy clothing, either barefoot, socks or lightweight trainers.
