Bernadette is a founder director of DMAC UK, and played a key role in setting up the studios we used to dance in 🙂 We love being part of this wider community of dancers, drummers, et al, and connected on into a wider circle still of DMAC’s partners, including Tribe of Doris.
NOTE: DMAC is currently looking for a new venue to re-open and continue its amazing work – what follows refers to the old venue, and the spirit of it holds true!
“DMAC UK is both a venue and a social enterprise. At our studios in Bristol’s Stokes Croft we host around 25 regular dance/movement/martial arts classes every week – African Dance, 5 Rhythms Dance, Ballet & Ballates, Tribal Fusion Belly Dance, Capoeira, Bellyfit, Contact Improvisation, Drumming, Flamenco, Salsa, Tango, Hoopdance, Hatha Flow Yoga, Tai Chi, Samba Dance, Pilates, and Afrofusion.
“Our studios rate as some of the best dance spaces in Bristol. The studios are available at weekends and occasionally in the week for bigger workshops, private hire and rehearsals.
“We also work to support artists. We work as an agency to engage dance and movement practitioners in workshops, we support master classes and artistic development, we have a start-up programme for fledgling artists and we support several education projects. We aim to promote artists wherever we can, and also to encourage communities in Bristol to engage with regular healthy activity on a weekly basis. We work with schools, community groups and events to promote dance as an essential part of modern living, and we have several partnerships developing in Bristol and beyond.”
