The SideKick Team, including the dancers, their friends, families and supporters, are all invited to take part in the SideKick Stroll - a 2.5 mile stroll around Thornton Reservoir. The reservoir is fully accessible with disabled parking bays. We are asking that everyone who takes part makes a donation of £5.00 but of course all are invited to get sponsors also! We need to do these fundraising events so that we can continue our important work in providing dance activities and training for all. This work can help in so many ways with both health and social benefits. Please do support us. Thank you.
SideKick Dance provide high quality dance experiences for people with disabilities. There are
two groups of participants, one age 11-18 and the other age 19+, both are based at curve Theatre in Leicester. Sidekick will soon be starting their primary aged sessions too called the SideKick Stars! Research states that dance can play an integral role in
developing physical and emotional capabilities of people with disabilities and
can have a positive effect on mobility of the body, increases in strength,
coordination, flexibility, cardiorespiratory fitness, and it stimulates the
mind-body connection, improving spatial awareness and social skills (Inal,
2014). The groups meet every Wednesday throughout the academic year to take part in dance class, create original work and to perform.
Sidekick also run an annual inclusive dance festival and they continue to run an annual performance for the special schools of Leicester/shire. To continue with this great work, SideKick desperately need funding. For more information please visit www.sidekickdance.co.uk
