Here at Spectrum Community Arts, our aim is to enable participants to develop their self-esteem and self-expression through dance, drama and singing. 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!

Accessible For All

Spectrum's workshops are specifically created for people with disabilities and additional needs. Sessions include sensory props, images and Makaton to support 
communication. 

 

We have both in-person and virtual weekly sessions so everyone can join in the fun! 

Small Class Sizes

Face-to-face class sizes are kept to a max of 10.  

That way Jade and her assistants can ensure that every individual is fully accessing the workshop, creating an enjoyable and supportive environment.  

Affordable 

Face-to-face clubs are only £6/week  

Virtual clubs are only £3/week 


​We ask for payment in advance for the term (half-termly for virtual sessions). If they is an issue, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.  

 

Class Timetable 
We are so excited to launch our new hybrid timetable !! We now offer Virtual Classes alongside our

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 more free so the children can improvise and enjoy moving and dancing in their own individual ways!

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