Can you spot Helen..?

Can you spot Helen..?

How are you involved with Casson & Friends? 

I am currently involved with The Dance We Made, which is performing at Bristol Harbouside sunday 17th July! Along with two other local Bristol dancers, Joel and Deepraj!

What do you love about dance? 

There are so many things I have come to love about dance. The reason I first started was because I saw a company that made me go 'Wow' and I wanted to make people say 'wow'. Further down the line, I love that dance makes people connect, create, inspire, and heal. It's something that anybody and everybody can do to make you feel good. 


What song always makes you dance?

This is hard ahhhhhhhh Why ask a dancer this? hahaha I'm going to say my most current favourite is 'oh yay' by Olatunji which is a track from trinidad. I do lots of different styles and this always make me dance around! Current Happy song!

What are you working on at the moment? 

I am currently working on me! I teach a lot and run RISE Youth Dance which I love but I need to work on me a bit to feel like I am the artist i started out as. RISE is getting stronger and stronger and I am in the process of trying to make it more sustainable. Aside from that I have just finished working on Big Dance Trafalgar sq and a show in Bristol so a bit of a break over the summer will be a good treat!

Follow Helen on Twitter, find out more about RISE Youth Dance, and catch her performing in TDWM at Bristol Harbour Festival and Arnolfini this Sunday 17th July.
