Black History Cymru 365 Multi-Cultural Dance

Rainbow Starlings

Based in Wrexham, Rainbow Starlings is a Black History Cymru 365 Creative Arts Programme of Multi-Cultural Dance for young people to learn and develop their skills in dance, movement and choreography.

The aim is to understand and engage not only in a range of authentic art forms, but to use those Art forms as a basis to develop future dance.

The sessions are aimed at having fun, whilst developing movement and music skills, engaging with others to work together to build confidence and co-ordination and to work towards creating new ways to perform.

The collective originally formed earlier this year and had two well attended free to enter dance workshops at Ty Pawb in Wrexham, prior to lockdown.

The original plan was for the dancers to learn a choreographed routine and perform at The Llangollen International Eisteddfod.

Due to the Covid outbreak, the dance workshops and project were suspended.

Not to be deterred by lockdown a group of enthusiastic individuals have been working tirelessly to migrate the project online in the hope that people can all unite in dance together, even though we must be apart.

A total of four online lessons have been produced, shot by the dance instructors during lockdown and professionally edited together.

The dances range from Hip Hop, Capoeira, Bollywood and African Dance.

Rainbow Starlings aim to premier one video at 11 am every Saturday of August on the Race Council Cymru Youtube channel and are extending an open invitation for people to join in and take part.
