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.
