Are you 13-25 years old?

Would you like to explore dance and reading and writing letters in an open and supportive environment?

Join Candoco Dance Company for a free weekly creative dance project this summer, suitable for disabled and non-disabled young people. No dance experience is required, just your enthusiasm!

Come along, make new friends and improve your mental and physical well-being!

Work with two fantastic Candoco dance artists to explore the rich world of dance and letters and have the opportunity to experience different forms of expression, both written and physical. Participants will take inspiration from letters old and new to work towards a public performance for family and friends as part of Islington’s Word Festival 2017.

This is a free project
