About the session...


Sensory Performers is a fun, relaxed performing arts club! The performers will explore different stories and themes through dance/movement, songs/music, role-playing/drama and lots of games.


The sessions incorporate different sensory props from pom poms to jelly and parachutes to pop-corn to really help bring our topics to life! Sometimes we also incorporate crafts and sensory storytelling too.


This club is all about being in the moment – exploring using all of our senses and unapologetically being ourselves to really help develop confidence and self-esteem!


Expect high energy, lots of noise (we do have ear defenders in the classes), a chance for the performers (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!


This organisation has the most enthusiastic and caring people who have reached out to my son and taken him out of himself allowing him to gain confidence through dance and acting. It is one of a kind and cannot be rated highly enough.
