The members of Janice Parker’s traveller dance are adults with learning disabilities and Alan Grieg’s X-Factor team is one of Scotland’s top professional companies. The linking up affirmed what makes dance such a vital, pleasing art form – Grieg’s choreography fashioned without condescension or compromise sees the travellers dancing onwards and upwards – they are persons of unknown talents and Parker’s bid to unlock these talents deserves encouragement and backing.
