INCLUSIVE DANCE CLUB is an inspiring creative dance project, led by DL.Bridge artist Katy Hewison, for young people aged 7-14yrs with a physical disability/learning difficulty. Involving inspirational workshops, an advisory group for family members & a supportive training program for a team of dance artists to deliver & learn together. 

The project has been running since 2023 to great success among participants and their families.

Inclusive Dance Club enables participants to learn new dance skills and gain a sense of belonging to a group. It is an opportunity for them to carry out a dance activity in an out of school environment, making new friends and meeting new role models that understand and support their needs. All of this has proven to increase their self-esteem, confidence and team work skills, improving their physical and mental health.  

The project allows parents and wider family members to be part of a new community and regular meet-up group. Their feedback will informe and enable new opportunities in the future and families will see the positive impact dance workshops have on children and young people throughout the project and particularly during any sharing opportunities that may arise during the project. 

Artist collaborators will gain a new set skills from the experience, creating long term benefits for their independent practice and the wider dance community.   

Pre-booking is essential.

This project is funded by Creative Ireland and Limerick City and County Council through Creative Ireland Made in Limerick Grant 2023/2024.
