JDL Receive Arts Council Funding!

We are absolutely delighted to announce we have received ‘Grants For The Arts’ funding from Arts Council England! This award will allow us to further develop beautiful North-Eastern Brazilian dance styles in our Pernambucan-inspired percussion and dance collective, and present even more exciting original work following on from our ‘Lion’s Mane’ project! We will also be working with exciting UK and Brazilian movement-based artists and organisations to practice share, explore exciting collaborations, and expand our Juba do Leão dance provision.

Look out for updates on this fantastic project over 2018, including a series of open workshops for drummers and dancers, and a banging JDL birthday event in the Autumn!
