Children and young people with learning disabilities


At Upside Down Dance Academy, we believe that dance can help children and young people with learning disabilities.

Some members of our team have extensive experience working in SEN schools and Pupil referral units. Our observations was that dance especially street dance was ideal to engage children and young people and for some of them to either improve their condition, unleash and hidden talent or simply empower them in developing a new hobby or vocation.

The class is a street dance class at Rookie level which focus on exercises that focus on dance, speech but also to boost their cognitive development.
