If there is one exhibition you can’t afford to miss this summer, it has to be ‘Dance with the Devil’ which promises to be as lively and vibrant as the two local artists involved.

Over a period of six weeks earlier this year, Sam Simpson and Claire Griffiths, both Fine Art graduates, spent a number of sessions in the studios of Phil Winstons Theatre School, Blackpool, photographing and drawing the dancers rehearsing a variety of routines. These talented artists have created a series of images that represent perfectly the energy and emotion derived from dance.

The exhibition explores how dance can spill over to other areas of life, begging questions such as the dancerโ€™s ability to become part of the music and the beat; how music and dance can connect groups of people; the emotion felt by the dancers and how that is conveyed to the audience.

The two women’s interest in their subject matter stems from a long time joint love of music and rhythmic club dance, and this is evident from the body of work produced . The photographs and drawings, both dramatic and sensitive, beautifully convey the professional dancers’ characteristics of energy and dedication.

On the 21st and 22nd of July Sam and Claire will be hosting their exhibition in the studios of Phil Winstons Dance Studio. Doors open at 6pm and light refreshments will be available.
