We provide dance, drama, music and creative therapies on a weekend basis 41 weeks a year (closing for Easter, Summer and Christmas). We currently run on a Saturday in Leicester, Loughborough and Nottinghamshire. On Sunday, we currently run in Leicester and Nottinghamshire. 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 have the opportunity to learn social skills in ‘understanding the world’ drama pieces, alongside creating their own creative and imaginative drama pieces, alongside creating props. In Music, individuals have the opportunity to 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 of our sessions are fun based, with elements of learning and development embedded in the sessions. In all of our sessions, we can adapt the activities to suit individual needs and abilities and also provide sensory alternatives.
Holiday Play Schemes
Over half terms, Easter and Summer, we offer a Play Scheme. These run between 10am-3pm and run in Leicester, Loughborough and Melton Mowbry. We again focus on the arts over the day.
