Dancing the Self
Delivered in partnership with Studio Emad Eddin in 2016, Dancing The Self was originally a project for women in Cairo. Providing a safe, private space in which women could connect to their bodies, dance together, dance for themselves, share and create. It started as a one-week workshop and due to unprecedented demand, went on to become a community of 150+ women, three levels of workshops, a performance and a year-long program delivered by local dance artists. In 2022, thanks to Cardiff and Vale Health Board, Arts Council Wales and Cardiff Women's Aid, we brought this project to women in Cardiff delivering weekly free mindful movement sessions from May through until December.
