What a rollercoaster the last 6 months has been for the Docks Academy.
After months of building works, preparations and blood, sweat and tears (literally), the doors opened on 4th March 2020 with comedian Lloyd Griffith playing to sold out audiences… only for a worldwide Coronavirus pandemic to force us to close our doors indefinitely just 16 days later.
The last few months have been no laughing matter. We have been hunkering down and keeping a close eye on the performing arts industry as it got skittled by COVID-19. But now we’ve had enough of hunkering. We have weathered the storm with determination (and a generous grant from the Arts Council – more on that later) and we’re raring to go.
In this, our first ever update, we talk rearranged gigs and collaborations with tap dance supremos but to kick things off, how about news of our first live performances since March?
