Our trained dancers, both with and without learning disabilities, work alongside each other to offer community dance workshops for anyone who wants to improve their physical health and personal wellbeing. As well as offering community dance workshops across the North West, we also provide dance leadership training to empower people with and without learning disabilities to become Dance Leaders and to gain the knowledge, skills and ability to co-deliver inclusive dance sessions. DanceSyndrome also perform live at a variety of public and private events across the UK, including community showcases, festivals, fundraising events, national conferences, AGMs, universities, schools and even parties and weddings! DanceSyndrome opens eyes. A performance allows us to share with you how powerful dance can be and allows us to challenge perceptions and demonstrate ability rather than disability.

Contact: Janet Wright

Tel: 01257 276178

 

Email: wright.j56@gmail.com

 

ABOUT US

‘Life Long Song’ is a service offering a musical experience to the community focusing on the Third and Fourth Age. We believe that there is a great need for initiatives that support the well-being and productivity of older people. We aim to draw people together to experience all aspects of shared music-making and singing. Within the framework we have developed of musical activity and communication, many immediate benefits are realised. These are social, emotional, physiological and cognitive.

Participants are seated in a circle where they are able to move, communicate, listen, watch and respond. There are warm-up songs, a welcome song, responses encouraged to interesting recorded music, appropriate and meaningful use of instruments and sound makers to fit with a song or recording, all adding enjoyment. Activities might include the use of stimulating props (scarves, ribbons, parachutes etc.)

Ali and Janet work together to ensure pace and awareness of the needs and skills of the group. With this level of mutual support it is possible to develop part work, both instrumental and vocal. Music enables, enriches and energises.

ABOUT US

We are inspired every day by the commitment and tenacity of those who support children/young people in schools or in extracurricular enrichment centres in a voluntary capacity to gain vocational experience. Today’s job market is competitive and we aim to provide those people with that extra knowledge to ensure that they are successful in gaining suitable employment. We also believe that in this area of high percentage house repossession, suicide, divorce and unemployment, the children involved are very often the ‘forgotten’ factor, needing specialist support to help them cope with personal issues and raise attainment, therefore not perpetuating the ‘cycle of deprivation’ any further.

As a company we run 1 day and short courses to enhance the professional skills of those who support children/young people with SEN, additional needs, mental health issues and those who live in areas of high socio economic deprivation, in any kind of voluntary capacity eg youth centres; schools; uniformed organisations. We also work with and support older teenagers and adults in a personal capacity, who are possibly out of work, retired or still in education, who are grieving or struggling to cope with a loss, the breakdown of a relationship or similar.
