Tappin' In - Pilot
In January 2020 we worked with some very lovely ladies who are residents at Midland Heart Housing Association. For 10 weeks we met every Monday morning for 2 hours. In the first hour we learnt tap dancing, in the second we shared stories over tea and biscuits. Watch the video to see what we achieved at the Belgrade, Coventry In March 2020.
This initial stage is a pilot supported by Heart of England Road to 2021 Fund and Arts Council Project Grants, and has tested ideas with a group of Co-Creators, working with partners Midland Heart.
