“icandance believes that everyone, regardless of disability, can access their own creativity through dance. We believe that dance enhances confidence and emotional wellbeing” Juliet Diener, Founder & Principal
We have developed a unique approach to dance which encourages creativity and integrates the use of specialised educational methods, developmental movement, expressive dance, therapeutic interventions and ballet technique. This approach encourages creativity, fosters social interaction and builds confidence.
