Dancing With Disability

Project description

The 65 adults with learning disabilities who attend our weekly social club are a creative lot – from dancing and singing to designing costumes and making films, they are keen to have a go, and produce some great results. So we want to fund a dance project designed, produced and performed by people with learning disabilities in Margate.

Project objectives

  • To involve all 65 members of our social club for people with learning disabilities in one big, fun, exciting dance project.
  • To showcase the talents and skills of people with learning disabilities and challenge negative perceptions and prejudice. (Eight of ten people with a learning disability say they have been bullied and find it hard to join in mainstream activities.)
  • To create a professional dance they can be proud of, filmed by our budding photographers and shown at a red carpet event to their friends, family, neighbours and local community.

How will the money be spent?

2 dance teacher, one half day per week for 12 weeks – 1,200 Club leaders x 3 hours x 12 weeks – £1,250 Costumes and props – £800 Film/photography materials – £250 Final edit – £1,000 Final performance – £500 TOTAL: £5,000

How would this money make a difference to the community?

People with learning disabilities don’t often get the chance to take part in a big creative project – this will give everyone a chance to shine.  The final performance will be filmed and shown to the local community, at our state of the art Gallery, raising the group’s self esteem whilst challenging negative perceptions and prejudice.
