General Details

DanceEast is so much more than a dance class facilitator and theatre venue. Artists and professionals are at the heart of our organisation and we are committed to supporting them in various ways; Associate Artist Scheme, Rural Retreats, CPD workshops, Advance Levels Classes, Choreographic Development Fund and much more.

DanceEast has been running a range of innovative community projects for over thirty years. We work with a range of partners on local, national and international projects and enjoy introducing people to dance for the first time as much as developing and refining skills in more experienced dancers.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

DanceEast holds 'Springboard' classes for both children and adults with additional needs. The classes are pre-school age, 4yrs+, 7yrs+and 16yrs+. 

Our Adult Springboard class is for adults with additional needs and carers are not required to attend unless personal care and support is needed. The tutors have extensive experience teaching dance to adults with learning and physical difficulties.

This class helps the participants to adapt to different situations and it assists with their social, creative and physical development. Engaging props, themes and stimuli are used to create beautiful movement.

Participants will begin to explore choreography and how to put moves together to create routines or pieces that can be expressive, narrative, emotional or purely physical.

For further information about this class please contact Box Office on 01473 295230.
