Trip the light fantastic will start working with a new performance group next year. This is always an exciting process of a group getting to know each other and working together on a project for 3/ 6 months and then getting to perform at the end of it. During this time you will learn a huge amount of technique, some great choreography and feel the warmth and support of creating something beautiful with a group of other queer people.
