Dance in the Allen Valleys
Between 2013 and 2017 I ran dance classes and projects for children in my local area, the Allen Valleys.
Creative thinking and developing sound technique were at the core of each class, with the children encouraged to explore and discover new ideas and approaches to movement, alongside developing fundamental dance skills.
The children’s movement experiences were enhanced by extending creative exploration and inspiration through drawing, writing and working outdoors, collectively resulting in an enlightening and highly enjoyable experience.
The projects ended with a sharing of work between groups to family and friends.
Dance sessions also encouraged children to explore moving with their siblings and friends and were designed to nurture interaction between carer and child.
Through play, props, music, movement and imagination, the sessions offered the children and carers a creative and sensory dance experience that engaged curiosity and delighted all involved!
