somewhereto_ brings street-dance to the Eden Project
Street-dance crew, The A-Team set the ‘nature trail’ ablaze yesterday as they found somewhereto_ street-dance in the garden of Eden.
somewhereto_, a project that helps young people aged 16-25 find the space they need to do the things they love, within sport, culture and the arts unlocked Cornwall’s tranquil Eden Project to host an exclusive free street-dance master-class and showcase on Saturday 31st March.
The workshop was led by The A-Team, a street-dance super group and 2012 finalists on Sky 1's hit show, 'Got To Dance', followed by a once in a lifetime public performance in the venue’s Mediterranean Biome.
Local budding young street-dancers were invited to join The A-Team in the home of worlds the largest indoor rainforest bringing the hard-edged, street style of dance to the backdrop of Eden’s very own Citrus Grove.
Betsy Dunlop, 18 from Newquay, Cornwall said: “It’s been such an amazing day and I can’t believe we’ve had the chance to dance with The A Team. I think a project like somewhereto_ is really important for dancers and I’ll definitely be using them to find out where else I can access space in my local area to practice my moves.“
Albert Yanit, The A-Team said: “We understand the hardships of being limited with creativity and boundaries such as lack of funds or space; and we find it amazing that somewhereto_ exists to support young people all around the UK. Performing at The Eden Project was something we thought we'd never do, and the energy from the performance was very organic.”
somewhereto_ is funded by Legacy Trust UK, creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK
