Newbury Contemporary Dance Company
The Company was founded by Edwina Anthony and Debbie Camp in April 1999, the Company is an ensemble of five excellent dancers all of which live, work or originate from the area giving the Company a strong commitment to West Berkshire and the surrounding counties.
It is the Company's aim to possess the rare skill of being accessible to a wide audience and appeal to children and adults alike. Through performance, education and outreach work they will enrich communities and in the local community be a cultural and civic resource to benefit all.
The work is highly accessible with something for everyone. Based on classical contemporary dance it retains the beauty of line yet allows for the movement to be expressive and organic. The work also draws on many other popular dance styles and uses a broad spectrum of music including Classical and Contemporary composers, all of which help to create a diverse repertoire.
"Aged 8 to 80 (or somewhere in-between) you will delight in the appealing style of this new Company. Beautifully trained dancers fill the space with movement & line, stillness, emotion, energy & imagery." Thatcham News, Nov 99.
To date the Company has six works in its repertoire including a commissioned piece choreographed by guest artist Heidi Selz from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Heidi's previous experience with such choreographers as Doug Elkins, David Dorfman and Neta Pulvermacher has further enriched the Company's repertoire.
Their work has been financially supported by The Corn Exchange Newbury, Vodafone, Newbury Building Society, Theale Green Community School, West Berkshire Council, Newbury Town Council, The Greenham Common Trust & The Working Arts Trust, Newbury.
