Situation

There is a distinct lack of professional disabled dancers but the talent is out there. There is little provision for integrated vocational dance training that allows disabled dancers to compete in the professional world of dance.

Solution

By enabling disabled young dancers to participate fully in classes with non-disabled dancers & reach a standard of excellence needed to compete in the professional dance world, we can nurture emerging talent that will feed the sector in years to come. Feedback obtained from dancers demonstrates a demand for regular creative movement workshops but that the existing care providers do not have the specialist movement training required to deliver these workshops. Stopgap fills that void.
