Free School Inclusive Dance sessions
Funded by Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation
Para Dance UK is the national governing body for Para Dance Sport in the UK. Our aim is to develop and promote dance as a sport and an inclusive leisure activity across the country for those who would otherwise be excluded
.We are super excited to announce we have received some funding to be able to offer 10 schools in Bedfordshire and North Hertfordshire free inclusive dance sessions from September 2021 for a period of 10 weeks. The sessions will provide creative and inclusive online dance activity for children with physical or learning disabilities and/or special educational needs. Our sessions are fully inclusive and everyone is welcome.
The benefits of dance are enormous; dance is a great way to keep fit, improve health issues, develop confidence, and improve stamina and breathing capacity, providing a healthy body and mind. But most of all, dance is FUN!!
Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you would like for us to send you a FREE inclusive dance session so you can have a taster as to what an inclusive dance session is, then please do let us know. In addition to this, we are also able to offer part funded places on our Inclusive Dance Training programme which will provide staff useful key tools, to enhance professional development. The idea is that once the 10 FREE sessions have been delivered by undertaking our IDT programme, the chosen staff member will then be able to continue the sessions long into the future as part of your weekly timetable.
To access this opportunity you do not need to be a trained dancer – you just need the passion to make a difference. In addition to this, once you have become an affiliated Para Dance instructor you may potentially earn additional income outside your own work hours. If sessions come up in your area we may ask you to take these sessions, where appropriate, and of course, if the staff member would like this.
If your school would be interested in this fantastic opportunity or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sign up today!!
Email [email protected] to make sure you guarantee your space. Let’s get dancing!!
