Door Dance Wave developed a digital dance challenge that involved a social media campaign to promote the health and well-being of residents across Walker, Newcastle.
Helix Arts joined forces with Fertile Ground Dance Company and local residents from Walker and Byker, Newcastle, to create the purposeful, fun, contemporary dance leading to onsite and online performances.
Professional dancers and local community groups created the dance. Members of the public were invited to do their version of the dance, record it and upload it on their socials using #doordancewave.
It then took to the streets of Walker to celebrate the challenge.
The Door Dance Wave challenge:
- Find a friend
- Find a door
- Play music
- Dance through the door
- Film it
- Share it on social media #doordancewave #Walker #NE6
- Challenge all your friends to do it too
Musician Jamie Young created this piece of music specifically for #doordancewave.
Download the #doordancewave music. Do it. Film it. Share it.
The project was curated by Dr. Dominic Smith and the late Craig Wilson, supported by Building Futures East and Walker Park.
