Oh I Do Like To ‘Dance’ Beside the SeaSide…

Updated: Jun 1, 2023

Introducing the 2nd of 6 Creative West End 'creative collaboration' projects for 2023:

"Oh I do like to 'Dance' beside the Seaside" brings together Chelsey Needham and Anthony Padgett creating a full Spring-Summer season of dance activities for everyone to enjoy! Creative West End is delighted to be able to support and invest in these local artists to build on their successful community dance collaborations that emerged from the Winter Avenues & Alleyways / Agora project last year.

A seed that spread.

Last Autumn.

A collaboration.

Reclaiming our natural spaces & environment.

Reclaiming our bodies for, movement, joy, expression & connection.

The gift of dancing.

Extinction Rebellion Flag:

Staying Alive Dance Session

Meet your dance hosts:

Left Anthony from Jazz Swing Dance, Right Chelsey from Your InnerSense. May Day 2023.

May Day Dancing & Dress-Up kick started this season's 2023 dancing with all the right seaside vibes... a Mermaid Dance led by Chelsey & an Eric Morecambe Dance led by Anthony.

Come along to the West End Markets to find out more information about the weekly dance sessions available, join in the dancing and/or watch.

Why dance?

The most joyful way to keep fit and healthy.

Create connections to the entertainment seaside heritage of Morecambe’s past.

Joyful connection to other people with no words needed.

Feel connected to the natural environment, claiming the space as ours to be enjoyed.

To express and inspire others.

Participate in our own human art.

An occasion to get dressed up and be your best shiny self.

Just like the passing on of stories, dancing is passing on of actions from various cultures and origins.

In the words of Strictly Come Dancing Keep Dancing….
