Specially designed by Dance Artist Emily O’Shea, CHALK! contains ten different activities for children and their families to inspire imagination, outdoor play, drawing, writing… and, of course, dancing! During summer 2020, some 150 families in Lache and Frodsham received Cheshire Dance CHALK! Activity Packs and in 2021, Cheshire Dance and Emily hope to deliver a 3 day dance residency at Frodsham Library as an extension to this project. The residency will engage the Frodsham community in movement and conversation around play and playground games, developing ideas from the CHALK packs and projects.

These CHALK! packs have been funded by The Westminster Foundation and Cheshire West and Chester Council through the COVID-19 Community Response fund.

A digital version of these packs can be found here:

"CHALK is an activity pack for young people using chalk drawings to inspire movement and creativity among families."
