Dance in your local library
Dance in Devon believes that anyone can reap the rewards of dance. Whether you're 4 or 94, they've a burning passion to get you moving - but perhaps not how you'd imagine. We joined Sue Smith of Dance in Devon at Paignton Library to discuss their latest project - All Aboard - a dance project at unexpected public places in Torbay.
Stepping inside Paignton Library, surrounded by books and reading, this is not the type of place we'd expect to find a new dance project. Yet, every Tuesday, this is exactly the place where you'll find Dance in Devon and a group of kids with their grown-ups.
Based within the kids section of the library, a circle forms, within which Sophie Northmore from Dance in Devon creates a magical journey through movement. Captivated by Sophie's lead, these pre-schoolers and their grown-ups explore creativity, gain confidence together and enjoy 45 minutes of imaginative play-based movement.
There are four locations to access dance every Tuesday across Torbay (see details below). Families can drop-in and join a session just once or every week. This is guaranteed to make you smile - as you and your little ones dance around a space packed full of colour and imagination. Well worth a try - especially as it's free!
All Aboard is an inclusive dance project for kids up to 5 years and for disabled children up to 11 and their families/carers. You can join a Tuesday session at Paignton Library (10-10.45am), Brixham Barn Children's Centre (12-12.45pm), Torquay Library (1.30-2.15pm) and Mayfield School (3-3.45pm).
