High Spin Dance Company (1990-2010)
High Spin Dance Company developed and supported the choreographic and performance skills of numbers of learning disabled dancers over two decades. The core company made several dance pieces and toured the UK a number of times, building audiences for learning disabled dance and raising the profile of the genre. Some notable examples include:
La Soupe with Liz Aggiss and Billy Cowie 1990
Performed in the Music Room of the Royal Pavilion Brighton, La Soupe won a Brighton Festival award.
‘The first thing that struck me was the total integration of these performing forces. I rarely had a chance to think, or make a comment that any one person was different from anyone else, or comment on the fact that ten of these people were adults with learning difficulties’ Stanley Hamilton, Dice Magazine
