Members of the DanceSyndrome team were thrilled to be featured in a brilliant 6-page feature in the April 2022 edition of The Lancashire Magazine to celebrate both World Down’s Syndrome Day and International Women’s Day.
The Lancashire Magazine article includes interviews with our Founder Jen Blackwell and Dance Leaders Ellie, Dorothy and Jodie, who all talk about how inclusion is vital to the work we do – which is the theme for Down’s Syndrome Awareness Week this week.
If you would like to join in the conversation around why inclusion is so important, please join us on our social media this week. You can find us on:
If you’re inspired by the work of our amazing Dance Leaders, please consider supporting our work with a donation via the form below, or find out more about fundraising for us:
DanceSyndrome welcomes everyone and we enable every single participant’s voice to be heard and all ideas to be shared! We operate an inclusive co-produced and co-led model with people with learning disabilities and we empower everyone we work with to be included, to be visible and to have fun.
No other organisation is working in this inclusive way, and we have won many awards and accolades to recognise this.
DanceSyndrome is a small charity which makes a big impact. A major funding grant has helped us to achieve so much in such a short time, but this has now ended, and we are reliant on donations and sponsorship to meet the ever-growing demand for our services.
We need your support at a time when the need to engage individuals with learning disabilities is greater than ever.
