Dance company brings recovery workshops to Northwich

A unique charity that uses dance to help people in recovery from addiction is coming to Northwich.

Fallen Angels Dance Theatre will offer six two-hour workshops at Northwich Memorial Court in Chesterway during June and July.

The workshops are open to anyone in recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol or living with a mental health condition.  They are free to attend and no dance experience is needed.

FADT creative and strategic director Claire Morris said: “In these workshops we will explore themes that matter to us through movement.  If you are new to dance, it will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and experience something different.”

The workshops begin on Tuesday, June 6 and run from 12.30pm-2.30pm.  Participants are advised to wear something comfortable to move in and bring water to keep hydrated. 

Fallen Angels Dance Theatre was founded in 2011 by former Birmingham Royal Ballet soloist Paul Bayes Kitcher, a recovering addict, and dance artist Claire Morris.  They are company-in-residence at Storyhouse Chester and members of their groups have performed all over the UK, including at the Royal Opera House in London.  They currently run recovery groups in Chester, Salford, Liverpool and Leigh.

The Northwich workshops are delivered by Fallen Angels Dance Theatre in partnership with Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust as part of their community Mental Health Transformation Programme.
