Every quality that strikes a chord this time of year from serene to saccharine, the hip to the holy, features in South West Dance Theatre’s new repertoire blending ballet, ballroom, contemporary and commercial. They will be performing their program of festive dance cabaret alongside the celestial carol singing of the Bristol Choral Society, and donating half of all the entrance fees to charity (the other half will cover costs). So whether it’s Hannukkah, Hogmanay, Yuletide, Newtonmas, Pancha Ganapati, Dongzhi, Kwanzaa, Zamenhof, or Christmas – join us for a cracker of an evening this festive season.

Witness the festive period through the eyes of this trio of fools and expect something between cabaret, comedy, a carol concert and therapy. The BEST way to get you in the Chrimbo mood!

Being Stuck Sucks. You’ve been slaving away on your latest project, but your struggling to translate the story to the page, stage or screen. You feel something is missing but you’re too close to the work to know what it is. Ultimately, right now, what’s in your head is not what’s showing up. The good news is materialising your vision is absolutely possible and together we can make it happen through 1 on 1 Work in Progress Coaching. “Kate’s coaching allowed me to break down the roots of my creative block, establish the crux of my initial excitement, and already start generating new ideas and approaches.” James Cottle, Screenwriter and Playwright
