Keep Fit With Theatre!

Tue 7 Apr 2020

While we’re all stuck inside and missing our theatre fix, it’s important to remember to stay active for the benefit of our mental and physical health. With many now unable to attend dance classes or access gyms – dancers, performers, and theatre makers are turning to social media to share tutorials and workouts, and so, we’d like to share with you some fantastic videos and opportunities from our associates and affiliates to keep you moving!
