Elements Collective

Welcome to Elements Collective

Tuesdays 6pm-8pm $5 cash!



Last year we made the big step back from running our studio and regular classes so we could focus more on creating and building Elements Collective's dance theatre productions. 
EC's Artistic directors Leah Tilney and Sammie Williams we have been busy creating 3x shows that we hope to tour later this year and 2017.

The cast's of each show have completed volunteer creative developments and the response to our work so far has been overwhelming .

This is where we need your help, We need to complete a final development and would love to have our show funded so we can pay our incredible dancers and directors for their precious time.
Please share our link and donate what you can to support this dream x many thanks in advance!
