Ability - a dance course for adults with learning disabilities.

Ability is a weekly dance course for adults with mild to moderate learning disabilities who want to develop their dance technique and skills alongside like-minded people. Delivered by Artistic Learning Manager Sophie Alder MSc, dancers are nurtured and challenged through our unique training methods which are adapted to meet individual needs.
