12 shows in a year? Easy. We’ve had 10 years practice!

10 years old today! Happy New Year everyone! I hope the seasonal break brought you all the love and goodwill your hearts desired. My little boy had a fabulous fun filled time and was delighted with his gifts….his little face on Christmas Day was magical.

Personally I am delighted to be back at work and planning a wonderful year of performance events to celebrate our 10 year birthday AND hopefully empower and emotionally connect a few people to create change along the way!

So this is LESS of a blog and MORE a diary of events. We are planning 12 shows in 12 months to celebrate being 10 years old! We have planned lots of shows, performances, workshops, press, celebs, creative and cool stuff, so do please sign up to a class and get involved. Some events are free and class prices remain the same as they were 10 years ago!
