A Surrey-based dance performance group for dancers aged 50 and older
Quicksilver was formed in 2014 by Sonia Talman and Angela Hardcastle.
The company currently has nine dancers and we occasionally invite guest dancers to join us for our performances. Our dancers range in age from fifty-something to eighty-something and have all had many years of dance training, albeit in most cases a long time ago! All the company members take company class, or barre, every week, followed by a two hour rehearsal, which is supplemented by a solo or small group session during the week, when necessary
The rehearsals are an opportunity to learn and perfect the choreography, but also to work together as a company, collaborating in the creative process and supporting each other as we try new things. We have been brought together by an enduring love of dance and that, combined with a good dose of humour, sees us through the occasional challenges, and many rewards, of rehearsal and performance.
