Digital Dance Festival 2020
This Digital Dance Festival is a 5 day event taking place 6-10th July 2020.
I wanted to create a festival during this current situation we find ourselves in to keep fellow dancers, dance artists and dance lovers moving and grooving!
I also wanted to celebrate and support other independent artists from around the UK that are doing amazing work within dance and their communities.
This festival has a different theme each day, whether you want to keep up your technique, try a new style, sweat out some frustration or just generally feel good by moving your body, there’s something for everyone.
All classes will be taught via Zoom. Have a look at the timetable and see what’s on offer!

The Seedling Dance Story
A creative collaboration between Karen Louise Dance and Anna Rowe Dance. From an original duet in 2017, we created and developed the work into a promenade performance for family audiences.
The performers take the audience on a journey through the woods, exploring the wonders of nature close up. Watching and helping the seedling after it’s departure from it’s mother plant, into an unknown land where human impact takes it’s toll.
This project was funded by The Arts Council England in 2019. We grew the project, bringing on board 25 inter-generational community dancers and 2 professional dancers. We also delivered the project within two primary schools in Suffolk, working with a Year 4 class to create their own version of The Seedling Dance Story.
Performed in two sites, Blakenham Woodland Garden, Ipswich and Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s, Foxburrow Farm Nature Reserve, Woodbridge in 2017 and 2019
This work is a collaborative semi-autobiographical piece. Karen, working with local composer Amy Mallett, to tell her personal story of dealing with loss.
Performed at Raw, Creative Heart Platform @ DanceEast 4th July 2016
This work is in a research and development stage. The piece focuses on clothes pollution; what happens to the clothes we throw away and the impact of this on our planet and it’s inhabitants.
Karen is hoping to turn this work into a dance film in 2021.
R&D version performed at Creative Heart Platform @ UoS 15th May 2017
