Workshop Packages

We deliver a range of workshops both independently and with local authorities and care providers.

We run events for communities aimed at people with visual impairments but open to all. Our events help boost confidence and self-esteem, improve development and mobility, and enable people to be creative.

Many of these events have been held at Waterside Arts Centre, who we have worked with since 2005 delivering hundreds of events, workshops, partnerships, demonstrations and presentations.

We deliver a range of professional training programs to help everyone from dancers to teachers learn how to work with visually impaired people.

See below for examples of some of these training programs and success stories.

Past Workshops

Here’s a list of some of the courses and activities we’ve run and the people we’ve worked with.

An Erasmus project introducing Body-Mind Centering research and application of the touch and movement methods to dance, education, and personal development – at St Vincent’s School for the Blind.

We received funding from BBC Children in Need to deliver a project in 3 schools involving visually impaired, sensory impaired, learning disabled and physically disabled students. We ran three groups: a visual impairment-specific group, one vulnerable girls group, and one autism specific group.

We were a core partner delivering dance in the curriculum, supporting teaching staff to deliver movement-based sessions, particularly in challenging class contexts.

“The children were more attentive – using creativity to explore ‘what learning is like”

In 2005 we ran a conference workshop and presentation in Barcelona on behalf of the British Council. We followed this up in 2011-17 in Sri Lanka and India, in collaboration with nATANDA Dance Theatre of Sri Lanka.

The ‘Changing Perspectives’ event at Sadler’s Well’s Lilian Baylis Theatre featured UK based dance individuals and companies (Corali, AMICI, Touchdown Dance, High Spin), for whom disability dance is key.
