This Is Us Dance run inclusive classes and opportunities, in and around the Tunbridge Wells area. Our work is sensory based, with activities and tasks that help dancers build on fundamental cognitive, social and physical skills.
We run both a Junior and Youth group, that is based at Bishops Down Primary School and have been running since 2016. As well as our Junior and Youth Group, we are proud to run TIU Dance Company for those dancers that have shown a huge amount of commitment and talent. In addition to this we also deliver, private lessons and outreach sessions across schools/ social organisation groups.
Our dance classes are open to all - Whether a child may need a boost in their self esteem and social engagement, or a physical/ learning disability. We create the class to ensure all individuals are reaching their own goals and challenging themselves, whilst feeling part of a family and being respected for who they are.
We run in association with Stopgap Dance Company as one of their IRIS syllabus youth groups. This is a specialised inclusive syllabus to allow our dancers to work towards an end goal as well as develop their dance and social skills. Dance Teacher, Hannah, has worked for several years in a number of professional Contemporary Dance companies, including that of Stopgap, and has gathered all that she has learned to create her own unique style of inclusive teaching to allow our dancers to grow in confidence, independence and feel proud of who they are.
