DiddiDivas - ballet and tap class and street dance class for preschool aged children with additional needs.
We have a performance-based session for children as young as 2 years old and their families with additional needs who meet weekly to work within a therapeutic framework, which offers a person centred approach to creating and performing.
This group of dancers are incredibly talented and the work that our practitioner delivers in collaboration with them is breath taking to see. Their work is incredibly moving and powerful. The impact that music and Dance have on children with disabilities is proven to support the children who, by engaging in dance and music, learn how to follow directions, focus, balance, distinguish right from left, and develop a concept of music and rhythm, as well as how to work well with others. The physical, cognitive, and social-emotional skills they develop are critical for all children. There is an emotional connection that children with disabilities have to music and movement, which allows the children freedom to express themselves and shine as individuals, with unique gifts and talents. This also improves self-esteem and an individual’s sense of wellbeing and purpose.
We are run by qualiﬁed practitioners and fully trained volunteers. DBS checked and registered with WLCVS. We are working with Well Skelmersdale, Live Well Project and CCG. Funded by the Lottery.
