Deaf Dance Summer School: Sadler’s Wells

For nine years, Green Candle Dance Company in association with Connect at Sadler’s Wells held the Deaf Dance Summer School for deaf children and their hearing friends and family. The program consisted of a week of dance and music workshops followed by a performance where parents, family, and friends could see what the participants have learned and created. Each year had its own theme, accompanied by different dance forms and music styles.
