Creative Dance Clubs
528 children and young people (510 with a disability) aged 5 to 16yrs, had the opportunity to meet and dance together thanks to our 5 after school clubs funded by the BBC's Children in Need Charity.
Participants enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends. They gained confidence and increased their self-esteem, by learning new movement and dancing skills, exercising, being healthy, improving their fitness levels, finding new ways of communicating and expressing themself...few!!!!
Regular volunteers and Transcend members David Jowett & Matt Byatt, both young adults with learning disabilities, provided extra support and excellent role models. Their confidence grew in supporting children and they both created their unique way of sharing their own skills and talents within the group. They were a great addition to the clubs, and valued by staff, participants and parents.
