Dance for people with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities (PIMD)

Cheshire Dance is a specialist in dance for people with PIMD. People with PIMD are participants in many of our regular dance and disability groups and as an organisation, we facilitate a practice sharing network for dancers across the UK who work with people with PIMD. At Cheshire Dance we proactively respond to feedback from people with PIMD and those who support them, and are currently developing a programme of one-to-one dance sessions for people with PIMD called ‘Wanna Dance?’

Dance Artists believe everyone can dance and be creative and they look at their work with PIMD through an artistic lens. Experienced dance artists offer opportunities for people with PIMD to be part of a creative dance experience – if they want. Dance artists can co-create dance with people with PIMD in the moment or/and for sharing with others. Dance artists enjoy noticing, developing, framing and celebrating the dances of people with PIMD – no matter how small they may seem.

At Cheshire Dance we champion dance artists, their learning and the development of their practice and approach to dance with people with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities (PIMD). As a result, our artists are inspired by working with people with PIMD and are passionate about working with each unique person in the way which is best for them.
