About the session...


Sensory Movers is a fun, relaxed movement club where the children aged 8-17yrs explore different types of music and props such as ribbons, shakey eggs and of course the parachute!


Sensory Movers is a safe space where dancers can unapologetically be themselves without judgement! The playlist and props stay the same for each half-term’s theme and each song has an accompanying prop.


Expect high energy, lots of noise (we do have ear defenders in the classes), a chance for the dancers (and parent/carers) to make friends and a whole heap of fun!  

This club is aimed at those with a higher level of support needs and is fantastic for sensory seekers!


Although the session is structured it is purposefully relaxed in a way that the dancers can choose not to copy the routines and can follow their own instincts to activate their senses, explore, move and grow!


It's my dance club and I love dancing with Jade. I feel Happy!

I love the Shakey Egg song.
