Centre Stage: March 2020

27 Mar 2020

This month we hear from Avatâra Ayuso, artistic director of AVA Dance Company and founder of the new charity AWA DANCE. In this interview, Avatâra talks about how she is using dance to empower women to give them the confidence and skills to take on more leadership positions. She discusses the importance of women having their voices heard, the value of empathy and her experience working with female refugees in Germany. Watch the full interview here:

“Dance can be physically very, very empowering. It allows you to connect with your body, with your heart and with your soul. It allows you to trust yourself and to accept yourself.”


Welcome to Centre Stage where we celebrate the diverse and innovative work of our members! Each month, following a different theme, we’re going to take a look at what our members are doing to support and improve the dance sector. We’re going to chat to a wide range of people who are working in the dance world, and film insights into what they get up to. So, why not take a break from your day and get inspired or maybe learn something new about dance! Don’t miss this opportunity to get an exclusive look behind the scenes in the dance world. Keep an eye out on our social media for more updates!
