Activities and events labelled as 'Taking Place In Cov 2021' have not been produced or commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust but are taking place during the City of Culture year.

A contemporary ballet workshop for 13 – 16 year olds. Open to anyone of any ability and experience, including complete beginners, led by Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer Tom Rogers.

Dance is one of humanity's oldest forms of communication and has been used throughout history as a tool to form identity and a sense of belonging. Through this workshop participants will explore the emotions of movement and how movement and body language is inspired by the people and places around us.

Tom Rogers has 15 years experience dancing with a world leading touring ballet company. He joined Birmingham Royal Ballet in 2004 and has been a soloist dancer since 2012. His engagement and participation work includes working with Youth at Risk on the 2 year project Ballet Hoo! Ballet Changed My Life, televised on Channel 4, and Ballet, Birmingham and Me - a production of Cinderella, performed by 59 young people from Birmingham.

Free, booking essential.

An accompanying event to The Bird and the Elephant by Emma Critchley: a series of outdoor screenings in Coventry city centre of an artist’s film exploring the legacy of Coventry Sports and Leisure Centre, 11th-13th and 26th-27th November 2021.
