Current Projects

Priory School Hexham

Breathing Space is an ambitious, participatory dance project for disabled children and young people at Hexham Priory Special School.

The project at Priory School enables participation in the arts in a rural area with limited arts provision. Their specialist, well-evidenced, inclusive dance approach will foster children’s creative learning and support physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Staff training will diversify skills, enhancing their work with children and expanding the project reach. A culminating dance film, shared with families, friends and local communities, will celebrate children’s ideas, stories and achievements.

How this will look will develop over the time they are working together but will highlight the range of work that the children and young people have experienced. The filmmaker, Alice Underwood, trained as a dancer and highlights the beauty of all movement however small or big it may be.

The film will be shown in the Autumn term 2024.
