These courses are for participants with additional needs, (previous learners have helped us to shape the course content). Learners with additional needs did not just want to learn a dance, they wanted to “put on a show” and be involved with everything that went towards a production.
Over the duration of the course learners will create and deliver a performance piece and learn skills to enable them to showcase the whole event at the end of the course. The course also includes developing skills to include make up, costumes, audience management, scenery, props, and music. The final performance is recorded, and learners are involved in this element too. The course is a good engagement tool for learners who may lack confidence to participate in learning or who have difficulties with learning and embracing physical activities through conventional methods.
