Our weekly hour-long face-to-face clubs and 30-minute virtual sessions run during term time. Participants are invited to perform at different events throughout the year, including our annual showcase!

Sensory Movers

This movement-based group will use a mix of different music - from different genres and with different emotions. Each piece of music will have movement that we engage in and involve a sensory element. Some tracks have a set routine that everyone will be encouraged to copy and follow, others will be freer so the dancers can improvise and enjoy moving and dancing in their own individual ways! All abilities are welcomed, without judgement in this fun, sensory session! 

Parents/carers are asked to remain with their child for these sessions.
