Third Bite Dance (50+CDS)

Lucy is Artistic Director of Third Bite Dance, an over 50’s contemporary dance company in Sheffield making work that defies expectations of the ageing body. This company was developed from 50+ Contemporary Dance Sheffield which Lucy founded in 2019.

50+ Contemporary Dance Sheffield provides regular contemporary dance classes and creative engagement opportunities for people aged 50+ in Sheffield. The group established after Lucy had conversations with older people who felt there were no classes or groups available in Sheffield that represented their ages, mobilities and abilities as dancers.

“I have never done Contemporary Dance before. I am delighted to have an opportunity at this stage in my life, to learn it and practice it and enjoy it. You have made it completely accessible and normal for 50 + to take up such dancing”

“It’s the perfect mid week, mid day pick up!”

“It’s great the way we can go from intense and concentrated to daft and funny in one session. Basically it’s really good fun with a lovely group of people!”
