Dance for all – with Natalie Speake

 Sunday 11am, riversidetickets – programme

“I will be running this session with David, a young man with severe autism and his parents, plus some extra friends and family members
We would like to open the workshop up for limited number of 15 extra people to join in. If you have a learning disability, then we would require you to be accompanied by a carer or suitable support worker.

I have been working with David for the past 8 years and running regular dance sessions for him and his family.  The success of these sessions has led to regular family dance sessions to celebrate birthdays, Christmas and other occasions. They are uniquely crafted around David’s individual needs and allow an opportunity for him to connect in an artistic and meaningful way with his family and friends.

We would like to offer the opportunity out to our wider community to come along and take part in this wonderful celebration of dance and individuality. No previous dance experience necessary but a willingness to join in and have fun is essential!”
