Our Impact

Magpie Dance regularly evaluates the impact of each strand of our work — participation, performance and training — to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our dancers and their care networks. Dancers, facilitators, parents, teachers, carers and staff members provide us with valuable insights into our methods, projects and achievements.

“… Magpie Dance was her sanctuary… where she felt safe, among friends who cared about her and supported her, with teachers and support staff she knew she could trust and rely upon. As well as the dance classes she loves, it allowed her to escape from all her worries.” Parent, July 2015.

Magpie Dance’s key outcomes are:

  • Improving COMMUNICATION skills – reported by 95% of the community class
  • Improving HEALTH & WELLBEING – reported by 86% of the Youth Group
  • Fostering POSITIVE SOCIAL INTERACTIONS – reported by 92% of the Adult Group
  • Improving CONFIDENCE – reported by 92% of the Adult Group
  • Empowerment and achievement through GAINING SKILLS – reported by 95% of the Youth Group*

*Reported in August 2015.

According to our participants, the long-term activities give them a sense of belonging, stability, happiness, and safety.
