The Dance Project
From November 2004 to July 2005, the Dance Project offered people with learning difficulties access to dance sessions at the Pavilion with dance specialist Sophie Wood. From the very basic foundations of movement, right up to fully choreographed pieces, the project offered places to 48 participants and drew from across Norwich. The project culminated in a 12-week integrated dance element, which brought 20 previous participants together with able-bodied dancers to develop a performance piece. Music for this phase was developed through a 10-week music composition element directed at young people with learning difficulties based at City College Norwich. Funded by the Lloyds TSB Foundation.
