Anjali Dance Company works to enable people with learning disabilities to take part in stimulating creative activity and encourages them to explore and develop their creative potential. Anjali’s Outreach Programme is designed to offer insights into the company’s creative processes and methods, develop the dance skills of workshop participants of all ages and abilities, and provide positive role models for people with learning disabilities. Our education work also promotes the work of Anjali Dance Company, introduces potential new dancers to the company and demonstrates the things that people with learning disabilities can achieve when given the opportunity.
We deliver workshops in a variety of settings such as SEN schools, disability organisations and groups, mainstream schools, universities, colleges, arts organisations, dance establishments, health and social services establishments and corporate establishments. Our workshops are led by learning-disabled dancers with support from a local dance artist. They provide excellent delivery and positive role models for people with learning disabilities. Each workshop is tailored to meet your specific brief and the needs of your group. We offer several different types of workshop, ranging from tasters of long or short duration to full days and residencies. We can also provide workshops for conferences and special events.
We provide training for Teachers and Leaders who are interested in leading dance or incorporating dance into their regular activities. We can provide training in various settings through practical workshops, resource packs and bespoke projects.
Professional Development for Dance Artists
We can deliver professional development training for dance artists who wish to work in inclusive settings or with people with learning disabilities. Please sign up to our mailing list if you would like to be notified of these opportunities.
As a leader in the field of developing the creativity of people with learning disabilities, we are keen to develop links worldwide and to share practice and deliver our Outreach Programme internationally.
