Welcome to FTM Dance

FTM Dance are a Performing Arts respite service for children and adults with additional needs, disabilities and medical conditions, aged 3 years old and above. FTM Dance provides performing arts and creative art related activities, sessions and workshops for individuals with a range of needs and abilities, including those with Autism, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy and Behaviours that challenge. We have services in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire


In Dance, we promote our preteens, teens and adults to engage in choreography and create their own performances, alongside learning specific techniques and genres if they wish too. Our younger children sessions promote turn taking, fine and gross motor skills, listening skills through dance related activities and action based songs, along with prop exploration.


In music, individuals have the opportunity to explore an array of instruments and create, rhythmic beats and more. We use paired and group work to promote team building skills, relationships and leadership. We also use solo work to facilitate an individual’s sense of identity and independence.


In drama, individuals have the opportunity to learn skills in ‘understanding the world’ drama pieces, alongside creating their own creative and imaginative drama pieces, alongside creating scenery and props.


We are proud to have lots of exciting opportunities to perform to local,national and international audiences , which all individuals can take part in, if they wish to. Every year since 2017, we have taken part in the Leicester Caribbean Carnival, where we took part in the procession through the city centre and a performance at Victoria Park in August. We also had the opportunity to go to Disneyland Paris to perform on their Videopolis stage to an international audience in October. We have performed at The Curve theatre for the past few years including performances such as ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘Grease’ and ‘Scrooge’. In 2018, FTM Dance explored Pantomime as an art form and performed their version of FTM Dance presents Peter Pan at De Montfort Hall and our most recent performance being The Magic Lamp at DMH in December 2019.
