Upcoming holiday schools

Three full days of fun dancing with live music, made to suit all abilities – and no previous dance experience necessary!

Exploring creative movement and related arts in a supportive, safe and stimulating atmosphere, with breaks between each task. Activities are explained clearly and cater for individual needs. Accompanied by live music from either a professional pianist or drummer, participants are supported to contribute ideas and take part in decision making.

It’s a great chance to have fun, learn new skills and make friends - regardless of ability.

Facilitated by the same team of dance professionals and volunteers who have been key to the popularity and success of Magpie’s weekly sessions. They are first aiders and have enhanced DBS’; as well as extensive experience of working with people with learning disabilities and highly successful careers as professional dancers, choreographers and teachers.
