We have several Activ8 dance classes across Manchester. We have both open access commmnity classes and private classes in schools and day centres. The classes can be accessed by all abilities and learn a range of dance styles and we use a mix of music genres and lots of props. The groups have regular opportunities to perform if they wish. We also offer the chance to take dance examinations.
Our drama classes can be accessed by all, we use a variety of mediums to express and perform including: Physical Theatre, mime, movement, comedy, sound bytes, etc. The groups regularly perform at local events and at showcases. There is no pressure to perform - members can come and simply enjoy the social aspect of the group if they wish.
