Dance Activity Training: Inset Training

We held our first inset training on Friday 18th May that was specifically designed for activity coordinators, care staff and support workers in a day service or care home setting who were interested in learning more about using dance in their centre.

We took participants through exercises that they could run at their centre, developed ideas to refresh existing dance sessions and helped participants to design a dance session tailored to their clients. 

We had a brilliant day meeting a great mix of participants who all agreed that as a result of this workshop, they had increased enthusiasm to deliver a dance session in their setting.

But don’t just take our word for it;

“This was brilliant, I wasn’t sure if I should come as I’m not actually working in a care setting, but it has given me the motivation to get on with setting up some community classes. Thank you”

“Thank you for good advice”

“Great session, really enjoyed it, would definitely do another workshop – well done”

If you would be interested in training of this nature in the future, please contact Clair Beckett clair@attik.org.uk

Community Platform

We opened the doors to the phantasmagorical Devonport Guildhall for the second time on the 25th April and had a great evening of film, music, theatre and dance.

The singer-songwriter and guitarist Josie Newton kicked things off on the main stage, followed by an a cappella vocal harmony group called Java 5 who got us all singing along to their repertoire of old favourites.

Attik 360 then took to the stage with Juke Box, a piece created in collaboration with Plymouth Music Zone which was a fun exploration of music and sound. Street Factory impressed with their moves and then Access Theatre had us laughing with their piece, the effects of a tale or two. Katie Ness slowed the pace with her beautiful belly dance and then SpinDrift youth combined contemporary with break dance. Sculptmotion at Roc Creative Arts Project performed two pieces, followed by a moving piece by Jorina Peters and Clare Parker and then last but not least Creative Space – Trace choreographed by a familiar face – Sally Robbins.

We had a brilliant night watching the performers and meeting lots of supportive people and in total raised £270.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the performers, the raffle prize donators, the volunteers, who made sure the evening ran so smoothly, the audience for their amazing support, cheers and applause and the Real Ideas Organisation for the loan of their beautiful building.
