Situation

Young women are referred to Greenwich Dance’s Limitless project through a range of agencies in the borough (CAMHS, The Point, HerCentre, Newhaven PRU, Youth Offending Team, etc.). Individual circumstances differ greatly, but most referred to the project suffer from low self-esteem, lack of confidence and behaviour problems. This effects their relationships, outlook and educational chances. We will work with participants from some of the most deprived wards in the borough including Woolwich.

Solution

Limitless 1918-2018 offers an enriching experience in a supportive environment in which young women can challenge and feel proud of themselves. By working with inspirational female dance artists, creating movement, contributing to a performance and completing their Bronze Art Award participants increase their confidence, team-working skills and self-esteem. It provides an alternative model of education that is practical rather than academic and allows participants to achieve in a different way.
