A Visit To Hannover, Germany

Between 10th and 14th April 2023 Helen and Luke (RISE Youth Dance Directors) and Hannah Nelmes (RISE alumni, currently in first year of professional dance training) travelled to Hannover to meet with our German partners at the Community Centre Linden to discuss and plan further development of our partnership and exchange project.

One key element of the trip was for the RISE team to meet the young dancers in Hannover, a group which was formed following the 2022 exchange project. One whole day was spent getting to know the group and beginning work on the creative themes for the July workshops and performance. This included a workshop led by Hannah as a youth leader and the RISE team worked also with the Hannover group’s dance teacher to plan the creative workshops.

The trip was invaluable in the planning of another exciting project for Hannover and Bristol, and the young dancers of both cities. Both teams feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to continue building upon this working relationship which is bringing dance to young people and new audiences for the first time.
