Stopgap Dance Company has been running dance projects in the community for 25 years. Our projects bring disabled and non-disabled people together to experience social cohesion by exploring the creativity of dance, and they often result in a performance to showcase solidarity between diverse individuals.
Sg Troop is a company of non-professional dancers who are interested in inclusive practice and choreography. Sg Troop is open to disabled and non-disabled people from age 16+.
The sessions focus on developing the dancers to become more confident in their artistic voice by opening them up to different ways of moving and making work.
Sg Troop works towards a performance for the first half of the year and then tour regionally at community festivals and showcases.
This group meets on Mondays during term time at The Weydon Centre in Farnham from 5.15pm to 6.45pm.Sign up here
Community dance commissions
Commissions to create dance works with disabled and non-disabled people in the community have taken us around the globe. Whether we are working UK, Japan, Palestine or Sweden, our inclusive creativity works across cultures and deepen understanding between disabled and non-disabled people. Our projects give our participants the opportunity to showcase how people can create bridge over differences by finding common ground.
This is a short video of our artists working in Cairo through the contemporary arts festival D-CAF. We were commissioned to create a short outdoor dance work as a part of the festival.
