Dancing Books is an innovative project using children literature as an inspiration for creative dance classes for pre-school children and their families. Following a successful pilot project in April 2016, DanceWest in partnerships with Hammersmith and Fulham Council, won significant funding by the Arts Council England Libraries Fund to expand the programme and make Dancing Books available to more libraries in Hammersmith and Fulham.
The Dancing Books sessions are free, interactive, involving both children and carers, and are led by an experienced and talented team of DanceWest dance artists in the selected libraries.
Sessions start next week in three of our libraries –
Monday 24 April, 10.15 to 11am at Hammersmith Library
Thursday 27 April, 10.15 to 11am at Shepherds Bush Library
Friday 28 April, 10.15 to 11am at Fulham Library
Dancing Books sessions are free and no booking is required. It’s a popular programme so sessions will be first come, first served.
More information about further dates can be found on the LBHF Library events webpage.
