Investment project code: 13
Our idea is to do tutored post lockdown dance and movement sessions with our already established teenage dance group and a number of other young people who we know have struggled throughout lockdown and would benefit from some low level support and guidance. We are aiming to help participants to build confidence and rebuild and strengthen relationships.
Alongside the dance and movement we will offer sessions with invited local experts looking at different issues around mental health, self-esteem and sexual health. These sessions would focus on important aspects of everyday life but in a more informal way whilst providing important information and signposting to agencies that can help people if and when required. We are intending to work towards a final performance at the end of the project which will either be attended by friends and parents or filmed so that young people can share it with supporters.
