Magpie Adult Contemporary (MAT) sessions are for adults, aged 18+, with and without learning disabilities, who wish to commit to exploring dance further by learning specific dance styles and techniques. Disciplines include ballet, contemporary and body conditioning. These sessions engage participants in high quality, inclusive dance style techniques involving active learning to develop and achieve measurable dance and life skills, creative and professional progression in dance. This class is a drop in class, so you can come along whenever you like.
The contemporary sessions allow participants to create their own movement and work with others to explore movement together. Led by our dance teachers, these sessions are open to all adults 18+, with or without a physical disability, learning disability or sensory impairment. Beginners and wheelchair users are welcome. These sessions offer adults both with and without learning disabilities the opportunity to develop skills in contemporary dance technique. Our unique, highly accessible inclusive dance methodology facilitates dancers to express their artistic voice.
For dancers with learning disabilities, the session offers the opportunity to develop their dance technique while supporting them to collaborate with dancers without learning disabilities; giving them greater scope and confidence to engage in mainstream programmes and activities. Dancers without learning disabilities develop their own contemporary dance techniques as well as experience in collaborating with people with learning disabilities, gaining insights into inclusive dance practice. Be creative, get active and have fun with dance in these weekly classes for all abilities.
These sessions are available both online and in-person.
