‘We rarely get the opportunity in schools to work with such confirmed experts in their fields. The students involved were both challenged and stretched in terms of dance and choreographic skills’ Annette Stuart, Deputy Head, Canons High School, Harrow
Develops dance with boys from schools and community projects in London and the UK. It incorporates Contemporary Caribbean dance, poetry, words and rap, hiphop, reggae and jazz influences. Dance enhances their physical repertoire and shows that it is possible to channel aggression into a positive form and not to be afraid of strong emotions, Carl Campbell says
‘ I have always wanted to see how you can get a certain quality of texture and softness and pride from young men towards non-aggressive movements, as in dance, especially young black men. It’s an aspiration I’ve had for years – unfortunately too often young men are seen as difficult and violent, we have been able to show that is not the case and provide them with an alternative to the media stereotypes and gangsta rapper culture’.
