Dancing together

Dancing Together

Dancing together was a project that took place in 2017 at Woodlands Park Children’s Centre and Nursery School, and Rowland Hill Nursery and Children’s Centre. Families attended Saturday workshops and worked with artists David Leahy ( movement and double bass) and Angeline Conaghan ( voice and music ) The project focused on working together as a group and using music, and movement and relevant early years pedagogy and theory to explore the benefits of dancing and singing together for the wellbeing of the whole family. Children attended with parents, siblings and on occasion extended family members and many families built relationships with each other as a result of taking part in the project. The project was funded by Sound Connections as part of a strand called ‘Innovate’.
