Lawk Naach Project Outline
Dance Sansaar are proud to be part of the ‘Dancing for the Games’ programme for London2012. Our aim through the ‘Lawk Naach’ project is to reach all communities of the West Midlands, through a series of interactive discovery workshops and online resources. The focus of this project will be two of the most popular dance forms of Lawk Naach; Bhangra and Giddha.
The project will create a legacy of Lawk Naach in the region, to be sustained and continued after London 2012 through a network of organisations and online resources. These resources will enable anyone to learn Punjabi Lawk Naach remotely and increase their understanding of Punjabi culture.
The project will be delivered through three core stages, which will be supported by free resources available through various mediums:
- A train the trainer programme for 10-12 artists throughout the region.
- Discovery workshops delivered to approximately 24,000 people.
- A dedicated finale event with a performance of 2012 ‘people dancing’.
