On the weekend of 8th / 9th of June, St. Mary`s Church in Windermere were pleased to welcome the `Elevate` Dance Company for a weekend of Dance Workshops and an evening performance which delighted and challenged people of every faith and none.


Elevate is based in London and is formed by the apprentices of the Springs Dance Company, Europe`s foremost professional Christian Dance Company which tours the UK and internationally performing and teaching work that is dynamic, entertaining and can be enjoyed by everyone, including those new to dance.


They perform and run workshops for a wide variety of audiences and at a wide variety of venues including theatres, schools, colleges, prisons, churches, cathedrals, festivals, conferences and outreach missions.


Their aim is to explore, through dance, faith and life issues from a Christian perspective. They seek to encourage dance within the church, education and the community and to pursue artistic and educational excellence.


Elevate were in Windermere as part of their 2013 UK tour and gave a day of tuition at St. Mary`s Nursery & Infant School and Windermere Junior School- along with Workshops for adults and young people at St. Mary`s Church. They also gave an entertaining Saturday evening performance, and they helped lead the Sunday Worship at St. Mary`s at 11.00am.
