The Changing Lives Through Dance & Performance Arts Project
It's perfect for young people in the Greater Manchester area who don’t quite fit into mainstream school but who would thrive in an environment such as our Dance Studio.
The programme is run in Carrington five days per week from Monday to Friday and includes:
Learning various dance styles such as Modern Ballroom and Latin (Strictly Come Dancing), Hip Hop, Street & Contemporary.
Developing an understanding of Choreography and how it varies depending on the tempo and style of dance.
Stage Makeup, Hair and Costume.
An introduction into setting the Stage, makeup, hairography & costume.
Developing an understanding of music styles, interpretation of its differing speeds, rhythms and dynamics.
Projection and exercises to strengthen and develop flexibility and self awareness.
We work in partnership with numerous bodies and educational establishments to deliver a programme which meets the needs of disengaged young people, to change their lives through the development of key life skills, and engage them back into society. The success of the programme will be measured through the evidence of change within key skill areas. We will be led by the following core principles:
- To change lives through activity and participation
- To be sustainable
- To build effective partnerships to create a world class education initiative
- To be knowledge based
- To nurture now for the future
Who are the target audience?
The programme will be aimed at young people in secondary school education who would be more suited to an alternative provision to mainstream school. We envisage over time the programme will be expanded to support a wider disengaged community.
