“Fresh, beautifully performed and choreographed, wonderfully paced and nuanced, and had such a strong emotional impact. It’s rare to see a daytime, outdoor performance in a public space which can hold the audience theatrically”

George Harris, Mirador

“This is the first time I have ever interpreted contemporary dance, there is so much detail, right down to the spindles,
I loved it all”

Peter Sweetmore

“The Gone Fishin’ dance project was loved by all children involved. Even the reluctant performers participated well. Throughout, the children were engaged, enthused and challenged. They were clearly motivated by being invested in a meaningful outcome- their final performance. The About Time Dance Company team were professional, extremely experienced and well received by the children; their passion for the project shone through. Additionally, the project was seamlessly cross-curricular, tapping into locality geography and historical enquiry outcomes as well as satisfying the criteria for the PE dance unit.”

Mr Duckett, Sandylands Primary School
