No dance experience is required, just your enthusiasm! Dancing Letters will bring together the rich worlds of contemporary dance and letter reading and writing to give participants the opportunity to experience different forms of expression, both written and physical.  Participants will take inspiration from letters old and new and work together for eight weeks to create a unique dance performance which will be performed on 30 June as part of the Word Festival finale.
