Weekly movement, play and creative dance sessions for disabled children and their siblings.

Fun physical sessions where children and their siblings can dance together! In our safe and fully inclusive environment, children are given the freedom to experience, explore and create movement together. Under the guidance of our specialist dance artist, and support artists, participants engage in playful activities that support future functioning, learning and health.

Dance Ability is open to children with any physical and/or learning disability or sensory impairment. Wheelchair users are welcome.
