What is involved in a ‘Music & Motion’ program?

  • Each session incorporates a variety of musical genre and instrumentation, and is tailored to the audience, with content, levels of difficulty, pace and movement modified accordingly. Programs are designed to encourage participation and social networking, and aim to enhance or maintain personal skills, confidence and achievement, and celebrate life in its many stages and variances. Each Music & Motion program is very much based around the personal musical tastes of our participants. We incorporate dance, exercise, jokes, singing, percussion playing and performance into each program, and focus on developing listening and responding skills, watching and following dance and actions, following instructions, taking turns, leading and decision making, working together on 'projects' and games, coordination, confidence, and musical elements such as dynamics, tempi, conducting etc.
  • Presentations of items (musical, poetry, mime, art & craft etc) by participants, is highly welcomed, irrespective of skill level.

What is involved in a Dance Class?

Our Dance Class for teenagers and adults with intellectual and/or physical disability endeavours to engage each participant, giving maximum opportunity for the development of basic dance skills, creative expression, confidence in performance, and the love of dance. Each class incorporates a variety of dance styles and dance games, and is tailored to the audience, with content, levels of difficulty, pace and movement modified accordingly. Participants need to wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in, and bring a bottle of drink.
