Unify Dance Festival

dance & disabilities at youth dance festival

Sat 16 November 2019, Lincoln Drill Hall

Unify Dance Festival will be a dance sharing which brings together dance groups of D/deaf, disabled and non-disabled dancers from Lincolnshire and surrounding areas. The festival will give dancers the chance to showcase their skills on a professional stage in front of a live audience.

Dancers taking part will have the opportunity to participate in an inclusive dance workshop on the day of the festival led by Charlotte Tomlinson, artistic director of SideKick Dance. SideKick Dance consists of a youth dance group for young people with disabilities and an adult company.

SideKick’s adults group will also perform as a finale piece in the show to inspire the young people to continue dancing after the festival.

In the lead up to the festival a new adult dance group specifically tailored for people aged 18+ with a learning disability, autism or both, will be set up at the Drill Hall.
