Here we are almost  at the end of 2011. Its been quite a year for us. We have toured six different countries with some beautiful and exciting projects. Our highlights have included the international tours of New Gold with a bigger ensemble. Jacob Casselden and Laura Goulden have been a wonderful addition to  Signdance's work. They both worked with us on the 'HERE' quartet and we are looking forward  to working with them on  future projects.

We have been involved in interesting academic and teaching projects with Bucks New University, SDC's new home! Highlights have included collaborations with Diablo Arts and BBC Radio 4 directors' Sue Roberts and Polly Thomas.

We have been engaged with two education projects in the UK - both Accentuate Projects. Driving Inspiration (Creative Bucks) and Campaign to be Me! (Creative Junction) have both been rewarding. You can watch the film on Signdance Collective's youtube channel.
