Why 11 Million Reasons to Dance?
People Dancing supports and celebrates ALL those who dance, want to dance or engage in dance.
That’s why we and a family of arts partners across the Midlands and North of England, supported by Unlimited Impact and Arts Council England (under its strategic touring programme), have come together to create 11 Million Reasons to Dance.
The project was inspired by the 11 Million Reasons to Dance photography exhibition and short film programme, launched in 2014. The exhibition is currently touring the UK and overseas, featuring Sean Goldthorpe’s commissioned images of iconic dance moments from film, all reimagined by Deaf, sight impaired and disabled dancers.
Sean Goldthorpe’s stylishly composed, challenging and fun images have captured the interest of people across the globe, challenging perceptions of how creative work by Deaf and disabled people is presented, supported and appreciated.
