My name is Jen Susan Blackwell. I’m 36 years old and I set up my own dance charity with my mum and dad. My charity is called DanceSyndrome and we are an award winning charity, and we are led by adults with learning disabilities. Our motto is ‘Dancer Led, Disability Inspired’.
Me and my fellow dance leaders in DanceSyndrome lead inclusive dance workshops across the North West and we perform in different venues, and we have performed at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. Here are some videos of us in action, I hope you like them:
This is our “Orbit” performance at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017
This is a film about the work that DanceSyndrome does called “Dream, Believe, Achieve”
It would mean the world to me and my fellow leaders in DanceSyndrome if we could recruit a celebrity patron for DanceSyndrome. DanceSyndrome stands for justice and equality and against discrimination. My passion for dance is my life, my life depends on it and I would love to have your support with my charity.
Ps. we are going travel the world with my dance company DanceSyndrome to give dance workshops in different countries by coach and a private jet plane too
Love Jen – the Queen of DS and lead director of DanceSyndrome
