Four Hands & Yorkshire Dance are looking for a community cast of children (aged 3-6) and their grown ups to take part in ‘Touch’.

Does your little one like to get a wiggle on?
Do you enjoy moving and dancing together?
Could this opportunity be for you?

We are looking for children aged 3-6 and their grown ups to take part in Four Hands’ performance of ‘Touch’ which will be taking place at Yorkshire Dance’s Encounters Festival and The Holbeck Community Club run by Slung Low, in Spring 2020.

‘Touch’ is a performance that explores the themes of connection, intimacy and play between children and their grown ups. The performance involves two professional dancers and their children and invites a community cast to perform alongside them.

Four Hands are looking for pairs of grown ups and children (aged 3-6) to be part of the show and to take part in a series of fun and playful rehearsals. No performance experience is necessary and all abilities are welcome.

Rehearsal Dates (2020):

Sun 19 January
Sun 26 January
Sun 2 February
Sun 9 February
Sun 16 February
Sun 23 February

Rehearsals will take place at Yorkshire Dance and will be 2 hours long (exact times to be confirmed).

Show Dates (2020):

Sun 1 March at Yorkshire Dance
Sat 7 March at The Holbeck Community Club
(Exact times to be confirmed. The running  time will be half an hour).

The community cast will need to be available for all the sessions including rehearsals and both performances. Local travel costs will be covered by the project.

To take part in the project or to find out more please contact George from Four Hands by emailing fourhandscompany@gmail.com or calling 07886 515456.


Four Hands is a dance company based between West Yorkshire and Brighton, that primarily provides performance and participatory work for families with young children. Our first performance piece, Touch, was premiered in March and reworked for South East Dance’s Our City Dances Festival in June. With a cast of professional performers, their children and a community cast of local families, Touch explores the themes of connection, intimacy and physical play between parents and their children. More info can be found at www.fourhandscompany.com.

‘Touch’ is supported by Leeds Dance Partnership.
