About this Event

Funded by Essex 2020 at Essex County Council

Tuesday 10 November 2020

Let's Go, TOKYO! Virtual Re-Launch day

The day is a mini-conference, to introduce the work to new schools and community groups and an opportunity to catch up with all groups that have already started the programme in 2020.

Between 13.00 - 15.00

We invite you and your students to join us for short a practical session.

You will need to set up either in a hall space or outdoors.

We aim to show and discuss adaptations of the choreography in line with social distancing, as well as end the school day share a celebratory performance for the young people who have been working so hard throughout 2020. We understand that schools and groups may have only learned a small part of the material but we would really like to see your young people dancing the work and celebrate their efforts and the unity of the return to school. So whatever sections you know or how short we would like your young people to be involved.

As a new school, artist or teacher this is your opportunity to see the dance in action - virtually!

You will then be given a short break (for schools to see students off after school) and return to us at 15.45 for a mini practical workshop and Q&A session which will finish by 17:00.

You will require practical loose-fitting clothing and trainers in the second session as we will show you how easy the work is to learn and teach.

We will also discuss plans for the festival in Braintree for 2021 and what might take place next year if COVID continues to keep us at a distance.

We cannot wait to dance with you!
