DanceSyndrome

Organisation

Summary

DanceSyndrome was founded in 2009 by its Director, Jen Blackwell, who realised that her disability was preventing her from following her dream of being a dancer and dance leader. DanceSyndrome believes that everyone has the right to follow their own interests and passions – regardless of whether they have a disability or not. We provide inclusive dance and leadership opportunities for people who believe disability is not a barrier to living life to the full. DanceSyndrome has an equal number of learning disabled and non-disabled company members, and our main aims are: To increase opportunities for learning disabled people to access dance; and To be inclusive and learning disabled-led. We hope to achieve these aims by: Delivering high quality co-led workshops for learning disabled and non-disabled participants; Presenting stimulating public performances; Developing our unique resource of skilled, confident leaders; Becoming a sustainable social enterprise.
