Please Stay Home...
We know this is a very strange, difficult time right now and we are missing dancing with all of our wonderful students and working on the fabulous projects we had lined up - however right now the best thing to do is to stay HOME. Now... that doesn't mean we have to stop dancing right? I mean it is in the name SOCIAL DisDANCING! So we have some fabulously fun weekly tasks to throw your way. Have a go, see if you can get the whole family involved, film yourself and send them over to us at so we can see what you have done or tag us on social media @nextdoordance
What are you waiting for..
Can you find a small space (the smaller the better) and have a dance. The biggest dance you can do in your tiny space! #smallspacebigdance
We would like you to find a household prop... anything you can find in your house. A cushion? A broom? A teddy bear? A book? This is now your new partner! With your new partner can you create a duet, film it and share it with us! #propduet
Inspired by one of our dance films 'Chairs Stairs and Pickled onions', can you create a seated solo? On the sofa, maybe a chair, perhaps the floor? Try and keep that bottom led to the seat, how can you move? Don't forget to film and share with us #seatedsolo
Inspired by another dance film of our 'The Magic Jumper', can you go and grab an item of clothing, the bigger the better! Explore all of the different ways of dancing with it, can you make it dance, or maybe try wearing it in a different way to create a dance. The possibilities are endless, so go raid that wardrobe!
During the Easter Holiday, we were aiming to run another one of our Shadow Movement Projects, which is an intensive project for young dancers who are interested in developing their choreographic skills, working, collaborating and performing with NDD professional company. As that was not possible, we would like you to celebrate the Shadow Movement Project by creating us a shadow solo! Either inside with a lamp or outside with the sunshine, have a dance and film your shadow Don't forget to send it to us or tag us on social media @nextdoordance so we can watch!
The sock dance! can you find the brightest, jazzy, colourful socks and have a sock dance. Let's get those feet moving...
Can you choose a body part, and film the biggest dance that single body part can do! An arm, your head... your tummy, maybe try a few. How fast can it go? How sloooooow can it go? Wiggle, slice, flick? Go crazy...

See below the photo montage of four pictures from The Beautiful Game. We would like you to bring those photos alive!! Extra challenge, can you do it in just 30 seconds? Grab those hats, scarfs and maybe even the face paint! Can you maybe get the family involved and dance the photos! We CANNOT wait to see your videos...
