DanceSyndrome supporter Craig Hartley has kindly donated 8 of his best poems to be used in a book with proceeds being donated to DanceSyndrome’s fundraising appeal.
Speaking about his poetry, Craig said “Having Down syndrome, I’ve always experienced an internal struggle with the things I’ve had to face in life. I decided to call this collection of my poems Reach For Perfection because I believe strongly that we can all overcome our struggles and reach for our own perfection in our own way.”
DanceSyndrome has a very similar philosophy. The charity was the inspiration of founder, Jen Blackwell, who also has Down syndrome and wanted to follow her dream of being a dancer and dance leader. Jen had a firm belief that ‘anything is possible even though you have a learning disability’. DanceSyndrome was established in 2009 and that concept is the foundation for everything that it does.
You can download a copy of Craig’s 12 page book for just £1.50 using the “Buy now” button below. The proceeds from sales of the book will enable DanceSyndrome to deliver more workshops in the community and continue to inspire people to follow their dreams.
If Craig’s poem’s have inspired you to get creative, then our We’re Crazy About Dance Competition is just for you!
