Movement and creativity for under 18 years

Touchdown Dance has received a BBC Children and Need award to deliver a project to enhance confidence, sense of identity, sense of self, and communication /expression of feelings via movement and relational interaction.  With over 30 years of experience we work with children and young people of all abilities.  This offer will be weekly on Wednesday afternoons at St Vincent's school, with 2 sessions, one after lunch from 2.15 to 3.15 p.m. and one after school till 4.30.   WE have been delivering this project for 3 years and open it up to children across schools in Merseyside from now to April 2021  For further information do get in touch.
