Inclusive Dance CPD with Dance Syndrome

Primary Dance UK and Dance Syndrome deliver live inclusive CDP dance session

Earlier this week, Lancashire founded dance tuition business Primary Dance UK and Lancashire based inclusive dance charity Dance Syndrome delivered a live inclusive dance CDP session to primary school teachers.

The training session, held on Zoom, aimed to equip primary school teachers with the practical skills required to deliver accessible dance lessons to both children and adults across the UK and beyond.

Over 70 teachers joined along with hosts, Sarah Hawthorne (Primary Dance), Vikki Boyd (Primary Dance), Anna James (Dance Syndrome), and David Corr (Dance Syndrome), a ‘dancer leader’ who has Down’s Syndrome but hasn’t let his condition stop him from dancing for audiences across the UK.

David’s most recent accomplishment included leading the cast of Lit aDrift, Dance Syndrome’s Edinburgh Fringe performance piece.

Dawn Vickers, Managing Director at Dance Syndrome said ” Working in partnership with PDUK makes perfect sense.  We share our values and recognise that we can be stronger together.  We see this as an important part of our successful future. We want to reach to share the joy of dance with everyone, whatever age, ability and background.  Dance is for everyone; it wasn’t invented and is part of the human condition. It’s an incredibly powerful medium to move our bodies and express our emotions, communicate, connect and get creative.  If you want to experience a natural high, try dancing.”
