I Am An Egg Dance Company offers adults with mental health needs the opportunity to increase their involvement with dance through weekly training and creative sessions. The company is led by Viv Gordon and a small team with lived experience of mental illhealth.
We offer different activities to support members to learn new skills and techniques, improve their fitness and develop their creative abilities in a guided, respectful and supportive space. We engage in different projects leading to performances, events and film work.
Activities include technique classes, world dance styles, creative games and improvisation, choreographic skills, performance opportunities, visiting artists, body conditioning and related creative arts.
We meet on Mondays from 10am—3pm at Bridgwater Arts Centre during school term time. We do not meet on bank holidays. Company members make a commitment to attend weekly. Participation is free of charge. We can contribute to travel costs for those who need it.
I am an Egg opens to new members at least twice a year at the beginning of new projects - if you would like to join the company please get in touch and we will let you know how and when you can apply.
