Rambert and Coin Street: Five years in partnership
Rambert’s partnership with Coin Street Community Builders began in 2014 when the organisation welcomed us to the South Bank and invited us to build our new home on Upper Ground. In return we offer an extensive community dance programme for toddlers, children and teenagers right through to Mercury Movers for over 60s.
Coin Street is a social enterprise working in Waterloo and North Southwark, London. From a derelict site in 1984, they have created a thriving, diverse, and welcoming place for people to live, work and play. Coin Street is at the heart of a thriving neighbourhood with co-operative homes, parks and gardens, shops and design studios, galleries, restaurants, a family and children’s centre, sports pitches, and a range of community programmes and activities.
As part of this vibrant community, Rambert and Coin Street work together to inspire residents to get involved in dance programmes and come to watch performances.
The partnership is made up of the people of Rambert and the Coin Street community. From working with young people in schools to choreographing productions for Mercury Movers, the co-operation of both organisations supporting each other was set up to benefit people in the community.
