Dance with the Elements - BBC Children's Television


Dance with the Elements (2013) is a series of four animated dance films for BBC Children's television.

A mixture of interpretive dance with animated backgrounds, the films were created in part to introduce classical music to children with additional learning needs. The films aim to take the children on an immersive and imaginative journey, whilst encouraging them to engage with and move to the music.

Dance with the Elements was produced and directed by Nick Hillel for GameLab UK (Martin Wright), choreographed by Gaby Agis and performed by Seke Chimutengwende, Rachael Gilda and Victoria Thompson. The animation direction was by Mummu and the costumes by Holly Murray.

Air is one of the four films that made up the 30 minute animation. The other three films featured the elements Earth, Water and Fire and can be viewed at:
