Disability Dance

Young girl in wheelchair laughing with another girlOur Everybody Dance Now sessions are for young people and adults with a disability or learning difficulty. The sessions combine movement and dance based activities to music to encourage agility, balance and co-ordination.

Combining simple dance routines along with the use of equipment including ribbons, scarves, pom poms and parachutes, the fun routines and activities are designed so that everyone can join in and have a good time. This class is suitable for everyone including wheelchair users and those with little mobility. Carers stay at the community sessions and are encouraged to join in with the classes if they want to! The dancers at the 12years and above class at the Rainbow Rooms are given the opportunity to take part in performer’s exams with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA).

We also deliver closed sessions to individual groups and Schools.
