Weekend Children and Adult Short Break Day Service
We provide dance, drama, music, and creative therapies on a weekend basis 41 weeks a year (closing for Easter, Summer and Christmas).
Our music and movement sessions for children actively promote turn taking, fine and gross motor skills, listening skills through game related activities and action-based songs, with prop exploration also.
In Dance, we promote our teens and adults to engage in choreography and create their own performances, alongside learning some techniques if they wish too.
In Drama, individuals can learn social skills in ‘understanding the world’ drama pieces, alongside creating their own creative and imaginative drama pieces, alongside creating props.
In Music, individuals can explore an array of instruments and create songs, 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. All our sessions are fun based, with elements of learning and development embedded in the sessions. In all our sessions, we can adapt the activities to suit individual needs and abilities and provide sensory alternatives.
