2012 Olympic and Paralympic opportunity for dna3d artistic director.

Towards the end of 2011, Dennie was offered the position of Victory Ceremonies Producer Games Time with LOCOG to work on the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.  In April of this year she moved to London to start this 6 month position.  The University of Wolverhampton and Elmhurst School for Dance (in association with Birmingham Royal Ballet) have been incredibly supportive by granting her a 6 month sabbatical, to enable her to take this position. “…For me this truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity – it’s not often that people in the arts get the opportunity to represent their country in the same way that sports people do so I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of such a magnificent event. “I’m extremely lucky to have made a successful career out of my passion for dance, performance and sport and am delighted that my commitment and hard work has been recognised with this amazing post. Working as part of the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ is absolutely the pinnacle of my career and I’m incredibly excited.” “This will be the first time I’ve ever had only one job – I’ve always been used to having several things on the go, but for six months my entire focus will be London 2012, and it will be very interesting to see how I find that experience, and how I work surrounded by some very different people to those I’ve worked with in the past. I’m looking forward to seeing how it changes my outlook and what new opportunities come my way as a result.”
