The DanceSyndrome workshop in Chorley had a special guest appearance this week by County Councillor Steve Holgate.
Steve Holgate, who represents Chorley West on the authority, is also responsible for supporting organisations working with disabled residents across Lancashire.
Steve showed everyone his dance moves at Chorley Community Centre as part of a weekly workshop delivered by DanceSyndrome Dance Leader Jen Blackwell and Dance Artist Donna Harrison. DanceSyndrome workshops are led by trained Dance Leaders with learning disabilities, who are supported by professional Dance Artists. They are creative and fun learning opportunities for anyone who wants to improve their physical health and personal wellbeing , regardless of age or ability. No experience of dance is needed, just a positive attitude!
The workshop in Chorley is a fun, accessible and inclusive dance and fitness session for anyone who wants to get moving and have a good time.
Steve said” I want to meet as many organisations as possible from across the county who are working to support people with disabilities. DanceSyndrome is a great example of a local charity helping to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities. You can feel the fun and energy in the room, it’s been a pleasure to meet everyone today and see the great work that’s going on in the community.”
Dawn Vickers, DanceSyndrome Managing Director said “We were all very excited to have Steve join in with our dance workshop today. Anybody and everybody can get involved in our dance workshops, so we hope that people will come along and see how much fun a DanceSyndrome workshop is, as well as being a great way to keep active and healthy. ”
