BBC video feature

One of Stopgap’s dance artists, Hannah Sampson, was the feature of a video by the BBC last week. Hannah has been training with Stopgap for many years as a dance artist and teacher. 

Hannah is part of Stopgap’s collaboration with Casson & Friends which is currently touring UK venues. Night at the Theatre is a mixture of dance theatre and imaginative storytelling to spark the imagination of children and their grown ups!
