Dance and Disability project in Wales

Dance and Disability project in Wales

Rubicon launched in 1976 and is the community dance development organisation for Cardiff and Newport. They can be found working in day-care settings, schools, hospitals and other community venues.

In 2017 they received £8,420 for their ‘Dance and Disability’ project in Cardiff. This has enabled a specialist dance leader to deliver weekly sessions including a ‘High Support Needs’ session for adults with disabilities.

They also engaged with two local special needs high schools to deliver weekly dance sessions to 12-19 year old pupils with disabilities. As a direct result of the project they have discovered a demand, using contacts with local schools and Disability Sport Wales to create a Dance and Disability programme for children with a range of disabilities which they are looking to develop on a wider scale in late 2018.
