Cheshire Dance has an established and growing specialism in developing dance opportunities with and for people with learning disabilities and people with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities (PIMD).
The Wanna Dance? programme sees service users of Vivo Care Choices with profound and complex disabilities take part in one-to-one face to face sessions with Cheshire Dance artists to explore how they might like to dance.
Cheshire Dance is a specialist in dance for people with PMLD. People with PMLD 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 PMLD.
