Here's Jean, (one of axis' THREADS Women in Dance participants) doing a bit of role play tonight with drama student Stephen Kelly. Stephen's doing a placement with us at the moment, so what better bunch of people for him to try out his facilitation skills on that this great possee of women! Stephen's going to do a 4 week series of workshops focussing on the women's stage presence, facial expressions and confidence - this will definitely stand to them when they next perform some Cabaret on axis stage!
