The GD Collective is for adults brings people and creative ideas together. The collective welcomes all adults over the age of 18 and all abilities. We meet weekly on Tuesday evenings in the brand new studios based at The Nest, overlooking Southmere Lake, just a short walk from the Elizabeth Line at Abbey Wood.

This Summer term we are creating a new work, specifically for our outdoor Summer in the Park festival programme taking place in parks across Greenwich and Bexley boroughs. It is important you can commit to as many dates as possible.

Expect to work collaboratively and grow ideas to create movement material with like-minded individuals. We will start work in a creation period of approximately 4 weeks, then a further 4 – 6 weeks to rehearse and refine the work created, before performing in June and July.

What to expect

Each week we will;
– warm up and learn technique
– play and improvise with movement ideas
– create and share
– appreciate and feedback

Key Performance dates
Sunday 25 June, Maryon Park, (Time TBC)
Saturday 8 July, Gallions Park, (Time TBC)

Times will be confirmed during the term. Please do keep the whole day free in your diary.

This collective do work to perform their work and ideas.  However, if you prefer not to perform, this is ok! There are many other ways you to take part and be part of the process. You can support in the creation process and on the day of the performances, come along as an audience member. We encourage you to bring a guest to the performance to support you and the company.

We look forward to dancing with you.

All led by the collective’s Artistic Director Maria da Luz Ghoumrassi.
