From the 5th November we start the second national lowdown, we know this is extremely hard for everyone. We want to use this time to spread joy and keep everyone as fit, healthy and connected as possible. The dancing doesn’t stop! We have a full Zoom program supported by Leeds City Council Community Committees, Leeds Public Health and [email protected]
Here is the DAZL Wakefield Pilot report and what we go up to during lockdown. You can download the report or ready the slides below, we are so grateful to Wakefield Council and Aspire Health for all there support. We are very excited for the next stage….
It’s time to get creative and competitive! We’re challenging groups of between three and 12, year 7 children to come up with their own dance routine. It could be inspired by TikTok, and children can choose the music themselves.
Check out the guides for more details, and the video from Dance Action Zone Leeds for some tips.
