FFIN Dance was founded by Artistic Director Sue Lewis in 2003 as a result of a growing demand for high quality dance in Wales. In July 2006, the company was delighted when Dilys Price OBE, became its patron.
The work created by Ffin is inventive and entertaining and appeals to all ages and tastes.
Greatly inspired by the work of Siobhan Davies and Richard Alston, Sue's work mixes improvisation methods with a love of musical form, to great critical acclaim.
Tonight is an extract of a longer, full-length work of 5 sections.

Review of FFIN Dance's Google Women, choreographed by Sheron Wray, at The Place's Touch Wood:
"To draw the evening to a close Sheron Wray's Google Women for Ffin Dance was beautifully crafted, as if meant for the wooden boards of the Touch Wood stage. The two female dancers delved into the Western perceptions of women, assisted by props and costume changes.
Luckily this highly political theme was displayed through flowing lines, caring partnering and an eloquent performance from Lisa Hood and Rebecca Evans. With a programme widely varying in styles and concepts." - Libby Costello, London Dance
