Coventry dance film showcases city's iconic landmarks

COVENTRY takes to the dance floor in a bid to showcase the city’s iconic landmarks.

Coventry companies Touchtype Films and Ascension Dance have produced a short film to welcome newcomers from outside the city through dance.

Director Jamie said: “We hope that the film can help current and future residents, and prospective tourists see the beauty of Coventry.

“Everyone who has worked on Sent To Coventry is incredibly proud of their connection to the city and I hope that comes across in the finished film.”

The six-minute film features dancers Ben Morley, Charlotte Dodd and Ashley Jordan – and sees them dance through iconic locations in the city, such as the Ricoh Arena and Coventry Cathedral.

Sent To Coventry is accompanied by an original soundtrack by local composer Tom Haines and is available to view on YouTube at

It has been supported by an arts grant through Coventry City Council and has received further funding and help from Coventry City of Culture Trust.

Laura McMillan, manager of Coventry City of Culture Trust, said: “We are very proud to have supported this wonderful film about the city.

“It brings together two small, independent, creative companies and shows off the city’s heritage and some of its more modern landmarks.

“It has its own beautifully composed soundtrack and I am thrilled that it is now available for everyone in the city to enjoy.”

Jamie added he is incredibly proud of what everyone who has worked on the project has achieved.
