Retina is offering professional dancers and dance enthusiasts the opportunity to rehearse and perform alongside the Retina company dancers at the performance of Layers of Skin at The Castle, Wellingborough on Thursday 28 February.

For professional dancers this is a great opportunity to fine tune your technique and get involved in some choreography. For dance enthusiasts, you don't need any specialist dance skills to get involved, just enthusiasm and a willingness to take part.

Everyone aged 12 and over with an interest in dance performance is welcome. Retina has been touring Layers of Skin across the UK since autumn 2011. This is what one of our previous participants had to say about their experience:

"I learnt more at a Retina residency than I have in two years at college." Krystal Campbell
