Ignition - Community Dance Showcase

  • Sat 17 Jun

Professional MC Hakeem Onibudo from Impact Dance will once again be presiding over Ignition's highly entertaining community dance showcase. For the first time this year, four bursaries have been awarded to support young artists and community dance companies to create new work especially for Ignition’s community platforms. Featuring the brightest and best local dance talent, this high octane event is sure to get everyone moving.

Ania Straczynska was born in Poland and graduated from the Academy of Music with a Choreography and Dance Techniques degree. She is an Artistic Member and Marketing and Education Assistant at Chisenhale Dance Space. Her works have been presented in the UK, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Ania combines contemporary dance language with dance theatre.

Francesca Wall is now entering the third year of a dance degree at Kingston University and has a passion for morphing styles, often creating unexpected dance forms within her work. Francesca’s cross genre approach allows dancers the opportunity to comfortably perform within the piece whilst maintaining her signature style.

Both Ania and Francesca’s will be creating new work to be performed for the first time at the two afternoon’s performances.


All ages welcome.
