As followers of our work know, our show "Falling Up" also stopped at the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival during last summer's tour. We really enjoyed being part of this lovely festival and would therefore like to share some beautiful impressions of the festival, the different and colourful...

Between September 2011 and December 2012 our education programme has been made possible by the generous support of the Transformers Grant Programme and Southern Housing Group. Now the Transformers grant has come to an end, we’d like to thanks our funders for their support. Together we have achieved the following: We ran 189 workshops encouraging physical and creative involvement, including 170 weekly street dance and acrobatics classes, and 19 taster sessions and family fun days. In total 495 people participated in one of our activities and 133 young people came to sessions on a regular basis 16 participants took part in the Step-Up group and created ‘Origin: London’, which was performed at 5 different events as part of the Cultural Olympiad and was seen by approximately 7000 audience members.

  The short performances last week were brilliant and a perfect way to end a fantastic term.  The young people showed off the skills and moves they have been working on over the term. They all received certificates and lots of cake. Altogether around 90 members of the community, friends and family came to support mimbre’s youth groups and watched the shows. Everyone had fun and had lots of positive feedback about the term and the performances. So well done everyone!

Mimbre are inviting applications from aspiring performers who are interested in joining our professional development programme.  Traineeships are available for London-based 18-25 year olds, who are able to commit to our Acrobatics and Acrobalance Masterclass on 12 and 13 January, and regular training on Tuesday evenings between 15 January and end of April 2013.
