The Company tour work choreographed by Artistic Director, Rachael Lines and invited guest choreographers, often working with musicians and artists, making intriguing and enigmatic work. FRONTLINEdance perform in a wide variety of settings such as adult day centres, galleries, outdoor events, schools and church halls as well as well known dance venues and theatres; ensuring those who would not normally access it can, and as many people as possible see our work.
FRONTLINEdance is an integrated dance company whose focus is dance and disability, but which also provides opportunities and access to a range of art, media, music, drama & pottery activities for all ages and abilities. It strives to target those who would not normally have the opportunity to take part. The purpose of the group is to increase self-esteem, confidence, teamwork skills and inspiration, to raise awareness of what is possible and promote positive responses to both disability and to dance. FRONTLINEdance was founded by Rachael Lines and Michael King in September 2000, and formally became a not for profit Company Ltd by Guarantee, with no shareholders in November 2001. Teachers/workshop facilitators are professional dancers, who have experience in planning and delivering high quality dance workshops, with additional experience in choreography. The FRONTLINEdance team can devise and create new and exciting dance performances for all ages, abilities and settings. FRONTLINE also work collaboratively with guest choreographers, visual artists, photographers, musicians and filmmakers.
