Blog entry to the end of my work placement

Posted in Uncategorized on February 20, 2013 by charlottegregory

It’s Cindy here again.. the German trainee.

My half year work placement with ACE Dance and Music is ending at the beginning of March..

During my half year in Birmingham with ACE Dance and Music I had the great opportunity to join in the African and contemporary dance classes, help with the kids classes, see performances and trainings with professional dancers, see outgoing workshops with schools or elderly people and get to know some management stuff..

It was a great time to see a way of reaching people from different backgrounds through dance, to procure culture through meeting, drumming and dancing..

It was a half year, which impressed me, that I’ll never forget, and which I can look back on with a smile..
Thanks to all ACE members for all your patience and empathy, for all the fun and chats we had together, for the warm atmosphere.
