2FaCeD DaNcE Company

2FaCeD DaNcE is the award-winning, all male break, street and contemporary dance company. Since its formation, the company has gained both national and international recognition and has subsequently whipped the UK male dance scene into a frenzied state! Innovative in its approach, fresh in its material, 2FaCeD is now one of the UK's hottest dance companies. 2FaCeD DaNcE has a strong education and outreach programme that runs all year round - specifically in the West Midlands region where the company is based, but also across the UK. Its regular evening classes, summer schools, in-school work, after school clubs and education packages are incredibly popular. Working with thousands of young people annually, the company seeks to offer young people (particularly young men) new opportunities and experiences within the arts. 2FaCeD are also seeking sponsorship for their current education programme. "Further information about the company or the work we offer is available on request". Contact: Dan Lowenstein, Marketing and Events Manager.

The aim of this project is to create a new genre of film and portray narrative dance in a new medium. "We will be creating a series of dance films over the next few months. We hope you will be able to support us in some way. Sponsorship will be credited accordingly and we will be doing our utmost to get these films seen by as many people as possible. This will include the use of targeted social media advertising. All dancers are recent graduates from full time dance training, all currently working in the industry, and the crew a talented creative team looking to make waves with something iconic in the industry. After releasing these videos, we will begin showcasing events. We will be approaching TV channels across the United Kingdom for assistance in promoting the narrative choreography and language of dance. We will be moving towards a new era of dance and entertainment and invite you to both support and move with us. Alfred Taylor Gaunt has gone from strength to strength with his choreography, as well as winning extensive prizes and recognition while still studying at Performing Arts School. He has twice been invited to choreograph a full piece for The National Youth Ballet of Great Britain, receiving fantastic reviews. In addition, Alfred co-founded FTG Productions, working to develop and produce new British musical theatre. Alfred Taylor Gaunt has also had his work recognised by leading choreographers such as Matthew Bourne and Drew McOnie".      "Seventeen year old Alfred Taylor Gaunt showed real potential in his Khaos at the Keaton Cafe, a ballet set to jazz music that followed the frenzied events of a new restaurant's opening night. His choreography was extremely fun and original with a particularly creative pas de deux", Dancing Times, November 2013.      "Petty's work captured the pathos, self-hatred and suppressed fury of Pierrot with precision, thanks to the choreography of Alfred Taylor Gaunt, who was fully to the pitch of how to interpret this work through movement", britishtheatre.com.

Amande Concerts UK is a concert agency that organises concerts in the field of Russian classical ballet and folklore in the United Kingdom. "We bring to you famous Russian classical ballets such as Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty. We are also in association with the unique Russian State Ballet - which is called The Big Ballet because each dancer weighs a minimum of 100 kg. In general terms, we would aim to have one to three concerts a year. Each tour can run from six to twelve weeks in Spring and/or Autumn. For any given tour we travel to around 35 to 45 different theatres in England, Wales and Scotland and perform to thousands of people. Our posters will be seen and noticed by an even higher number. We offer the opportunity to advertise on all or just some of our marketing materials, such as posters and fliers (a sample poster is attached as the logo). On average we would print around 4,000 posters, ranging in size from A0 to A4, that are displayed in each theatre on tour. We would print around 150,000 fliers (A5) and around thirty banner stands. In addition to that we offer space in our programmes and on our website. You will be reaching out to a niche market and targeting a specific type of audience. In addition to sponsorship space on posters and fliers, there is the opportunity for a more detailed advert/description in the programmes and on our website. Last year alone our website attracted 12,000 unique visitors". Contact: Alexej Ignatov. Tel.: 07886548334. E-mail:

The Arches Project which is based in Digbeth, Birmingham and is in its infancy, operates a gallery providing a platform for innovative artists in all disciplines. "Our gallery space will be given to a group of artists so that they are free to engage with the space without the pressure of commercial gain, which can sometimes restrict the work of the artist. The exhibitions will range from solo shows to a group of live art performances and screens. The ethos of the project is dedicated to supporting artists in realising their visions and their dreams, so we are seeking sponsorship from your company. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities, which will be focused on one of the several exhibition events. Continued support from individuals and companies is crucial to the continued growth of the studio. To keep moving forward and be able to commission its own exhibitions, the studio urgently needs sponsorship. Supporting the mission will be of benefit to those companies wishing to advance. We believe that by bringing the community together to celebrate diversity through the arts there will be better understanding between groups of people living in the community. Please contact us for further details". Contact: Evette Edmeade. Address: Adderley Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B9 4EE. Tel.: 0121 772 0852. E-mail:

Camara is a young, up-and-coming choreographer who in just two years has taken his company to performances at the Southbank Centre and WOMAD's main stages.

Press quotes

    'One of the best kept artistic secrets burst on to the stage, grabbed us, mind, body and spirit and fed us a cherished hour of the most exciting and dynamic African dance imaginable ... if you want to celebrate the joy of living spend an hour with Ballet Nimba', Theatre in Wales Review. For the full review go to

    'The audience were utterly transfixed and overcome by the whole experience - the sounds, the movement, the beauty, and the emotional intensity of the story. Everyone was so surprised by the intensity of expression of the dancers and the musicians they could barely communicate the wonder that they felt", Classical Journey Radio review of Ballet Nimba at the Home festival - http://classicaljourneyphonic.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/dartington-home-festival-feast-of-music.html

    'Alongside these stand out performances for me over the weekend (at WOMAD) were ... Ballet Nimba's performances, including the Taste The World where they danced, sang, talked, explained how the instruments were made, and still got time to cook'. Read more at

    'What does the "D" in WOMAD stand for? "That's a popular question round these parts. It is, of course, "D" for "dance", an aspect of the festival upheld this time around by, among others, Ballet Nimba. If you thought ballet was all about pirouettes and pas de deux performed at half-speed, let these six dancers recalibrate your preconceptions. This is an energetic, at times highly acrobatic display of West African dance, a discipline somewhat cast into shadow by the spotlight shone on the region's celebrated melody-makers. Not that Ballet Nimba neglect the musical element. The calibre of its accompanying musicians equals that of its dancers, whether delivering furious percussive work-outs or embroidering their compositions with the undulating melodies of the balafon and Fulani flute. Although drawn from several countries across West Africa, Ballet Nimba's focus is on recounting the mythologies and history of Guinea through choreography. We guarantee it'll be the most frenetic and physical history lesson you've ever sat in on - http://womad.org/artists/ballet-nimba/"'

    'An evening of West African culture, mythology, dance and music from Wales's new African dance-theatre company, Ballet Nimba. The show features traditional and contemporary Guinean dance from six agile performers, the rare talents of a Fulani flute player and the rootsy sound of the Ngoni, the traditional African acoustic guitar. Combined with the rousing rhythms of some of West Africa's most talented percussionists, it'll be a challenge to stay seated during the performance', press release from Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.

The Inter Varsity Dance Association is the organisation promoting dancing amongst UK university students. It is a non-profit, student-led organisation that was founded in 1963. Since then, the IVDA has implemented initiatives to encourage more student involvement in dancing, both on the university and open circuits; to improve access to training; and to develop university clubs. By providing grants and support to both fledgling and established national student dance societies, IVDA has given many thousands of people the opportunity to learn and hone a skill and compete against like-minded dancers from across the country. Every year the IVDA showcases the talent it represents by holding a national student dance competition, the Inter Varsity Dance Competition (IVDC). Its main concern is dancesport, which comprises of competitive Ballroom and Latin American dancing, but it is increasingly providing initiatives to assist those that compete in other dance styles, such as the British Universities Dance Competition (BUDC), the inaugural edition of which was held way back in 2007. The IVDC provides competitions for those at every level, from beginner to advanced. It regularly attracts professional ballroom dancing couples for demonstrations. The IVDC provides exhibition stand space for sponsors and retailers with links to the dance world, who often provide student discounts on their goods. This gives companies exposure to the 800+ dancers and spectators that attend. There is also the opportunity to advertise in the hall during the competition and in the programme. The webpage boasts 900,000 impressions per month, and offers advertising space and sponsorship listing. The IVDA invites all university dance clubs in the UK to affiliate. Its committee consists of representatives from each member society. The association is headed by an executive committee of elected members, which is responsible for organising the annual competition and implementing various initiatives. Around thirty member societies from across the county affiliate each year. E-mail: sponsorship@universitydancesport.com

For more than ten years Magpie Dance has been carving out a national reputation for its unique way of enabling people with learning disabilities to take part in dance. The charity works with young people and adults, offering regular, weekly workshops led by specially skilled professional dancers, accompanied by live music. Magpie Dance also runs a more advanced performance group, plus a groundbreaking mentoring programme for new choreographers with learning disabilities. The organisation works directly with around eighty people with learning disabilities in the Bromley area each year, but affects the lives of hundreds more - carers, parents, students in schools it visits, volunteers, professionals on work placement and its public audiences. There is no other dance provision like Magpie in the region. The increase in self-confidence, creative and social skills gained through working with Magpie is remarkable. Magpie is about extending opportunity to people who suffer exclusion through social and environmental structures not adapted to their needs. It offers new ways of learning and communication for people with learning disabilities through expert, tested methods of creative inclusion. A great example is Peter, who came to Magpie around three years ago, saying few words and only doing a few small, repetitive movements. In 2005, at his own request, he choreographed a new duet and performed in it with a professional dancer in front of 500 people! Magpie Dance won National Charity Awards in 2003 and 2006 and a Certificate of Achievement from Bromley Council (November 2003) for its work with people with learning disabilities. Magpie has been seen at the South Bank Centre, the Royal Albert Hall, Trafalgar Square, Sadlers Wells and The Churchill Theatre in Bromley. Magpie receives no regular funding and relies on project fundraising to enable it to continue. With no office base and mostly part-time/freelance workers, the charity channels all resources possible into giving people with learning disabilities a chance for creative involvement that nobody else offers.

Don't miss the dancing sheep!! 2,000 children between the ages of 6 and 11 can be captivated for thirty minutes by this ewe-nique show. Audiences are of all ages, but have a high proportion of females. Is it the good looking Kiwi presenters, or "Nobby the Norfolk Horn" - or perhaps "Sam the Suffolk"?
