It was great to hear that the regional 2012 Legacy Trust funded initiative 'imove' is supporting 'Don't Just Sit There', an exciting project linking art and sport in the run up to the 2012 Olympics...

The Northern Ballet Project, working with Education Leeds, the College of Chinese Physical Culture, Open Minds Theatre Company, Phoenix Dance Theatre and the Rugby Football League, tackles issues arising from sedentary lifestyles in 'Don't Just Sit There'. Planned activities include:
  • 'Spirit Alive' our child-led mini-Olympics;
  • 'Energisers' mass participation events for adults and students;
  • Work in schools involving classical and contemporary dance, physical theatre, Chinese movement and music, Indian and African dance, West Indian Carnival and New Zealand Haka.
It is great to see work in schools being supported through brilliant initiatives like this.
