DiverseAbility Dance 

Due to the ongoing risk of COVID 19 we will be limiting the numbers of dancers in all our classes. All classes must be booked in advance. If you are interested in joining Monmouthshire Connected Dance Company or the weekly DanceAbility sessions for the first time please contact us on 07515 030926 or email kathydanceblast@gmail.com

Dance Blast is committed to providing opportunities for all members of the community to participate in the arts, regardless of ability. All our DiverseAbility classes are inclusive, non-disabled dancers are very welcome.  
 

The aims of Dance Blast's DiverseAbility programme:

 

  • to provide disabled members of the community the opportunity to participate in dance activities in a safe and creative environment, alongside their non-disabled peers

  • to provide opportunities for disabled people to experience the process of creativity through dance

  • to provide opportunities for disabled people to develop their dance skills

  • to provide opportunities for disabled people to perform
