Dance UK and a steering group of organisations from a wide range of dance backgrounds (including the Foundation for Community Dance) have come together and devised a national campaign called DanceVote 2010.
The aim of the campaign is to connect every politician from the main parties with at least one local dance activity in their constituency. The group want every candidate to understand that dance is important to their local voters. The high profile campaign will include e-cards, letter writing drives, visits by politicians to dance activities and media coverage.
A key tool for the DanceVote 2010 campaign will be a 90 second film showing short clips of as many different types of dance, enjoyed by as many different types of people as possible. The film will be the launch pad for the DanceVote campaign, and will end with a sign-off taking people to the DanceVote 2010 site and an e-card to send to their local politicians, asking them how they will support dance and the arts if they are elected.
Sadlers Wells has kindly agreed to edit the film together for free, but the DanceVote campaign cannot do it without your help and film of your dance activity.
Please can you send any film that you are happy to be included, to Caroline Miller at the following address;
Old Finsbury Town Hall
Your film footage needs to be cleared for usage and free of charge for this one-off film.
The film will be on the Dance UK website and also posted on YouTube. It will include full credits for everyone who has contributed film, showing your support of Dance and the DanceVote campaign.
