A NEW dance company has been launched by a pair of Matlock friends.

Adaire To Dance, based in Starkholmes Road, in Matlock, has been set up by graduates Alice Vale and Gemma Richmond.

Company manager Alice, who is also a contemporary choreographer and performer, said: “We aim to create contemporary dance pieces accessible to both dance enthusiasts and first-time audiences and to work as much as possible with Midlands based artists to expose and develop the huge wealth of talent available in the area.”

The company plans to host a show and workshop in local schools and bring professional standard dance to rural areas.
