What Becky has to say …

‘Dance makes you resilient, it makes you a good team player, it draws out confidence; so many other things, other than just allowing you to dance. That’s what dance at Instep is all about. After making the film ‘In her bag she carries’ it was great to be able to submit it into dance festivals nationally. I’m really proud of it and I was excited to be given the opportunity to make a film through Instep. I really wanted as many people to see it as possible, for me, for Instep, and the dancers and creators, to show the amazing work that goes on here’
