ABOUT US

DanceSyndrome is an inclusive arts charity that aims to inform and empower people through dance. 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.

Wonderful Things

Tel: 07875 968528

 

Email: hello@wonderfulthings.org.uk

Web: www.wonderfulthings.org.uk

 

ABOUT US

Wonderful Things provides innovative extra-curricular activities to children, delivered out of school hours, but within the safe environment of primary schools and local venues. Project Managers ensure a particularly wide spectrum of themes to the activities, so that children are inspired and motivated to engage in challenging activities that they would not usually have access to.

Activities range from the arts (eg: Pirate Dance Day, Theatre Day, being a DJ) to science and technology (eg: Lego Day, Forensic Science Day, Skills Day) to the outdoors (eg: Forest Day, Crazy Sports Day) the practical (Baking Day, Journalism Workshops) and the unusual (Parliamentary Day, Didgeridoo Day!) These opportunities inspire the children and feed into their social and academic attainment, and the impact of this has been commented on by both parents and educators.
