Spring into Action Launches Inclusive Dance Sessions for Ribble Valley Youths

6th May 2016 - posted by Lucy Hamlin

Spring into Action, an East Lancashire based community interest company that provides quality inclusive developmental activities for people with learning disabilities, will launch their new project, Spring into Dance this Saturday 14th May. 

The organisation has received funding from Lancashire Sport through their Sportivate initiative, which provides funding to run blocks of sport and physical activity. The funding will allow Spring into Action to provide dance activity until October 2016. The sessions are open to all young people aged 14-25.

Young people that have been working with Spring into Action since late last year will be supported by Spring into Action to run these sessions, and will form part of their ongoing weekly youth activity club. They will also work with DanceSyndrome, who will lead the dance sessions.

 Director and Project Coordinator Rachael McHugh, said: “This funding enables us to run inclusive dance sessions for at least the next few months and will help us expand our work in the community, giving people with learning disabilities, their siblings and friends opportunities to get involved in sport and physical activity in a safe, fun environment.”

Spring into Dance will be based at St James’ Church, St James’ Street, Clitheroe on Saturday mornings from 10.15am. The first sessions launch on Saturday 14th May and will cost £4 per person.
