Big Dance: The Giants Story, Summer Reading Challenge
The Giants Story was the 2014 Big Dance theme in the South West supported by Pavilion Dance South West, using dance to enhance the Reading Agency’s Summer Reading Challenge (SRC). Eleven libraries across the South West from Falmouth to Havant ran public dance events to promote the SRC to 4-11 year olds exploring stories of myths and legends, specifically focusing on the giant.
Bath Dance supported the BaNES based project, led by local practitioner Hannily Bendell and with Bath Central Library. Hannily worked with over 160 young people aged 3 to 11 years on the lead up to and during the project leading to two intimate performances in the library and an open participatory workshop for families.
