Homegrown Dance Theatre was an idea founded in 2009 by Julia Williams, formerly Dance Advisor for Cheshire County Council and National Programme Leader for Dance in schools and colleges and now Director of the NDTA. Homegrown’s mission is to provide high quality dance experiences for children and young people.
Homegrown is an umbrella term for a collective of individuals (Julia Williams, Vicky Sheard and Jo Rhodes) who historically have grown up, participated in, delivered on and led dance in intensive and residential settings throughout Cheshire and beyond, primarily working with the Conway Centre. Homegrown aims to further develop the residential and extended opportunities in dance that have always been part of the landscape for the children and young people of
Cheshire. Homegrown now continues to develop its relationship with the Conway Centre and will this year be running a range of residential courses for children and young people and their teachers.
