Company of Others is a dance organisation based in the North East, led by Nadia Iftkhar.
As part of our work, we lead Company of Others Ensemble, a dance group for people over the age of 60 who might be experiencing social isolation and who are looking for a fun way to keep moving.
Rehearsals take place every Monday 1:30-3:30pm at West Denton Community Centre and are Pay As You Feel.
In each session we warm up, learn and practice new movement and work creatively to make our own movement. We take time to cool down and stretch and then we have half an hour to catch up and discuss how our week has been with each other.
Every couple of months we take a trip to the theatre together to see touring dance productions.
Here are some words from our dancers…
‘Before I started dancing, I felt like I was sleep walking into old age.’ George, Company of Others Ensemble Dancer.
‘Its impossible to be isolated if you come here.’ Linda, Company of Others Ensemble Dancer.
