  • Need

    Need

    Their is a lack of activity for young people with a disability to take part in competitive dance, especially in urban dance styles in Leeds.

    Solution

    We will provide weekly activities for young people with a disability and ensure they get the experience of a dance competition. The same opportunities will be available to these young people just as they are for the young people who do not have a disability. The program will reduce inequalities, breakdown barriers and provide opportunities and aspirations for those young dancers with a disability.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Provide urban dance for young people with a disability from areas of deprivation across Leeds

    Activities

    » Provide weekly urban dance sessions with opportunities to perform locally and regionally including dance competitions.

    We will look at retention and engagement, then get feedback/ case studies on the impact of the dance activity has had on the young people with a disability .


  • Impact

    Impact

    The young people will develop new skills such as which will improve their communication, interactions, cognition and overall health and wellbeing.

    We will do this through various assessment tools but simply through the dancers attending each week and performing which has so many benefits for the young peoples health and wellbeing.

    Risk

    We have already piloted this project and now ready to implement this in the long term which eliminates the risks as we have already tested this work.

    Reporting

    We will report via social media also blogs via DAZL website and our partners ensuring we gain as much coverage as possible. We will also inform people/ supporters/ donors via our Mailchimp email system and publish the success in our annual review.
