Over 350 children aged five to seven years old from schools across Caerphilly are taking part in a very special dance project this month!
Bombastic Dance will be resident in Caerphilly from Monday 21st April to Friday 25th April. There will be two performances of their show The Magic Doors at Blackwood Miners' Institute on Thursday 24th April with 12 hours of workshops linked to the show-taking place in schools throughout the week.
Bombastic is a live arts production company making dance theatre and new media productions for young people led by director Sean Tuan John, one of Wales' most successful independent choreographers with an international reputation.
Two friends, Molly and Thomas, prefer to play indoors away from the bullies in the street and Brutus, the neighbour's nasty dog. Doors become portals to magical worlds of their imagination.
"We are pleased to be supporting Bombastic's production as it's very rare for us to be able to offer dance workshops and performances to such a young age range. We are hoping that our very youngest of audiences will love The Magic Doors, and that this will be a fantastic introduction to the magical world of live theatre and dance," Sharon Price, General Theatre Manager, Blackwood Miners' Institute.
Children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes from Rhiw-Syr-Daffydd Primary School, St Gwladys Primary School, Bryn Primary School, Penllwyn Primary School and White Rose Primary School will take part in The Magic Doors project.
