DAZL & Wayne Sables Collaborate
We at Dance Action Zone Leeds have done multiple projects with Wayne Sables over the past 5 years. Wayne Sables Project and DAZL have linked up most recently on the #DAZL15yrs projects supported by Art Council England, Leeds Public Health, and Leeds Community Foundation – Jimbos Fund– the projects have been designed to bring WSP’s Dance & Film work out into the community collaborating with DAZL Artists / Young People and other organisations.
Wayne has created Dance and Health Films, A documentary, Promotional material
for DAZL Work, Supported Showcases and have helped developed DAZL shows to be livestreamed building a wider audience. This has aged young people and Families from 3-25 and their parents engaging with over 200 people already. The families are from across Leeds most deprived areas and the reaction to Wayne Sables has been truly amazing. The work has been challenging and at times push the young people/ communities out of there comfort zones but overall the experience has been extremely fun!
You can view the work of DAZL & Wayne Sables on our YouTube Channel – www.youtube.com/dazldiamonds .
We aim to continue the develop this partnership with new projects in 2016 which will have the DAZL Youth Company and Doncaster Youth Dance working/ sharing work and a joint collaboration for children and families in East Leeds (Richmond Hill Area). The project not only engages the families/ community through high quality artistic work but is designed improving the whole family’s mental and physical health through dance as physical activity and Artistic opportunities/ activities. The project also encourages social interaction with parents and children bringing communities together which embeds the DAZL ethos and that of Wayne Sables Project.
We are so happy to have these Multiple Arts experiences and look forward to future partnerships and collaborations across the city of Leeds and Yorkshire. For more information on Wayne Sables Project vist http://www.waynesablesproject.co.uk/ or email Wayne Sables Artistic Director:[email protected]
