Celebrating all abilities through theatre and dance

A SERIES of dance and theatre workshops at Alstonville Dance Studio will help celebrate the International Week of People Living with Disabilities.

They will be held from Monday, November 30, to Sunday, December 13.

The Integrated Dance and Physical Theatre Workshops will be run by teacher Suzie Whiteman with guest Contemporary teacher Samantha Agnew.

Ms Whiteman said the workshops are open to people with different levels of dancing ability.

"Everyone is welcome, both dancers and non-dancers, the young and old, boys and girls, beginners and professionals, and people with and without disabilities," she said.

"The workshops will explore themes based on the concept "Don't DIS my ABILITY" and will celebrate the diversity and ability of people with disability.

Ms Whiteman said Ms Agnew is a former pupil of hers.

"After leaving Alstonville Dance Studio she furthered her dance training in Sydney and then worked in Contemporary Dance throughout Europe," she said.

"She is excited to return home and run these integrated workshops and reconnect with the Northern Rivers and her dancing roots".
