We are now into the third week of our summer holiday dance clubs, and having some great response from the community. The children and young people with whom we are working have been absolutely fantastic.
The holiday clubs provide free dance classes for children in Blaenau Gwent in Wales, aged from 3 – 11 years old (we have a few unofficial teenagers too!) and we are running them at community spaces within easy walking distance of their homes. As part of our ongoing commitment to providing high quality dance provision to the community, company dancer Catrin Lewis and ffin dance faktry teacher Krystal Campbell are both working with our youth volunteers to create a package of opportunity.
New Ground, our volunteers project, goes from strength to strength with past members progressing on to professional dance training, primary school teacher training and community welfare. We have enthused children to enquire about regular dance activities that we run in term time and also sign-posted some young people to youth dance activities within the County, with whom we have very strong links as a partner organisation.
Sadly, next week will be our last week of holiday clubs and we will be sharing our work with parents and friends as follows:
Monday 11th August 2014 2.45pm at The Met, Mitre Street in Abertillery
Thursday 14th August 2014 2.45pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, Somerset Road, Brynmawr
It would be great if you could join us …
