Dream, Believe & Achieve
We collaborated with dance classes in Beeston, Nottingham.
Proud to be partnered with...
Dance Syndrome provides training for individuals with learning disabilities and/or autism to become dance leaders. Dance sessions are co-delivered by a paired professional and trained dance leader. With support from Dance Syndrome, Pulp Friction set up a performance group called EveryoneDance 2 in 2019 that is still running on a weekly basis. Catherine Chivers is a dance professional who runs the dance sessions every Wednesday at Beeston Youth and Community Centre. Although this is no longer a Pulp Friction project we are very pleased to be able to signpost our members to the group.
“The staff are so patient, organised, consumed and committed to ensuring everyone is looked after and learning through fun and art.”
“Without Pulp Friction we would not have a social circle or friends, it has brought both my daughter/son and I a family. It’s very good for our mental wellbeing and has brought a happy time into our lives on a weekly basis.”
“My daughter/son’s confidence has soared; they love being a part of a friendly group of people that we trust.”
“Positive impact on my daughter/son’s life, it’s provided friendships and new skills, a good use of time”
“Helped with independence, making friends, maturity, having fun and enjoying life.”
2020 Lockdown Dance Classes
Throughout the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, we felt the need to continue supporting dancers, we did this by ensuring that even though we could not meet face to face, dancers were still able to meet albeit, virtually.
What to expect at the classes...
The classes provide a safe space for dancers to work together and develop confidence skills. When you come to the classes, there is no pressure to participate, you can watch from the side, or if you’re really ready to go then join straight in!
