Dance for Families

​On Monday 3rd August we will be uploading our first dance video for you to watch and then respond to! You can send us your own dance videos by uploading them to social media and using the #WhitbyParkSummerFun as well as tagging Action Transport Theatre. We'll then choose some of the best and (with your permission) edit them together into one brilliant dance montage.

You can then attend our socially distance dance-athons in Whitby Park on the 12th or 26th August between 2-3pm.

The workshops are open to all ages, families will be allocated spaces on arrival...
