Kala Sangam teams up with Dance For Life for Movement!

Encouraging healthy bodies and minds through regular exercise and activity, Movement! dance classes are for people aged 16+ with a disability, learning disability or autism and their carers, that take place from 5-6pm on Mondays at Kala Sangam.

Happening in a supportive, friendly and accessible environment, the classes are a fun way to learn dance and performance skills, keep fit and meet new people. As well as the health benefits of dance, Movement! classes help to improve confidence and co-ordination and offer the chance to make new friends.

No experience is required – whether you are totally new to dance or have been to classes before, come along for an hour of fun, to learn dance, movement and performance skills. There will also be opportunities to perform at Kala Sangam throughout the year.

Classes cost £5 per session (or £30 per term), the first session is free to attend and carers are encouraged to join in anytime, free of charge.

Kala Sangam is a disability-friendly venue that is fully accessible with a lift to all floors, with safe and secure parking available over the road at The Broadway Shopping Centre. For more information on accessibility (including information on disabled parking options) please contact Kala Sangam on 01274 303340 or info@kalasangam.org.

Kala Sangam is also an inclusive venue, having introduced a Pay What You Decide ticket pricing policy for most shows this year. Since then, Kala Sangam has seen a major increase in new audiences visiting the Centre.

Fay Beesley, Education and Outreach Officer at Kala Sangam said, “Here at Kala Sangam we offer a fantastic range of fun-filled dance, theatre, music and language classes for both children and adults.
