How do you take an idea to the stage? How do you apply for funding? How do you make a swing show accessible to a non-dancing audience? This month we're joined by dancer, fundraiser, and creative producer, Nancy Hitzig.
Last year, Nancy Hitzig and Cat Foley launched a project called Swing Sister Swing - an original swing dance and swing music show celebrating female choreographers, musicians and jazz dance.
In today's episode, Nancy shares her experience of taking an idea and a story to the stage, along with the logistical and creative decision-making involved in this process.
