Danielle Teale Dance has been awarded a significant grant from Arts Council England to expand the reach of its Collective IDentity (CID) Project with dancers with Parkinson’s.

The seven partners for the project are University College London Hospital: Arts and Heritage (Central London), Arts at St. George’s Hospital (South West London), Poplar Union (East London), LPM Dance and Health (Lancashire), Dance Network Association (Essex), and The Point (Eastleigh). Danielle Teale Dance will also work with CILIP, the UK’s library and information association, to connect with libraries across the UK for a national events and exhibition tour.

To allow a safe return to in-person activity, the project will begin online with a programme of virtual dance workshops, before one-to-one work with dancers in their own homes and gardens, culminating in a series of live group workshops.
