Dance4Change to support young people with sight and hearing loss
The Change Foundation’s ‘Dance4Change’ programme has partnered with ‘Sense’, the national deafblind charity to launch a dance course for young people with sight and hearing loss.
The dance sessions will provide the opportunity for young people from 17-25 years old to develop their dance and performance skills, while working with some of the UK’s top dance professionals.
The course is free and no previous experience is necessary. Participants will be supported by dance professionals, multi-sensory communication experts and trained support staff throughout the sessions.
Nic Vogelpoel, Head of Arts and Wellbeing at Sense, said:
“We’re really excited to be working with Dance4Change to organise an accessible dance course for young people with sensory loss. Dance offers a unique language for creative expression and the chance to extend physical awareness. We hope that everyone taking part will leave the course with new skills and have lots of fun.”
The short course launches at The Place (17 Duke’s Road, WC1H 9PY) in London on14 November and runs every Friday from 6.15-8.15 till 19 December.
