We need to help the people of Wyre keep dancing. Our specialist classes and new community dance opportunities give everyone the chance to experience the best medicine for health & well-being!
People need opportunities for connection and self-expression more than ever. This programme for Wyre will improve physical fitness and mental well-being, helping people to overcome personal challenges and find connections with others. We've been working with local communities in Wyre since lockdown, filling gaps in provision and helping those most in need. Your support will pay for the continuation of our inclusive work; funding live and digital classes for people with neurological conditions and disabilities, and providing new public workshops and festival events for all. Regular live sessions and digital classes will widen access for more people to have the opportunity to experience the benefits of dance and culture. Tasters, one-off workshops and performance events will encourage more people to get involved. Training for local artists will enable the continuation of activity.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Improving physical and mental health through physical, creative and social activity. Supporting the symptoms for people living with Parkinson's and other neurological conditions. Providing safe and accessible workshops led by experienced artists. Widening access to dance for those who may otherwise be unable to participate. Reducing loneliness & social isolation by providing opportunities for people to come together, initiating the development of friendships between people. Provide meaningful volunteering opportunities that develop skills. Provide training opportunities for younger dancers and emerging artists. supporting the legacy of the programme.
Steps to get it done:
We work in collaboration with public services such as the NHS, social prescribers, Fleetwood Library, Healthier Fleetwood and Fleetwood Arts Partnership. We engage a local volunteer as our Community Activator who helps us reach more people in the community. This ensures we build a programme that responds to the voices of the local community, and is effectively connected to the other cultural and leisure opportunities.
