We’re taking our Creative Movement classes online from Saturday 4th April!

The Covid-19 pandemic has drastically changed the way we all live our lives. We know that coming up with creative ways to keep your little ones entertained in these times is no easy feat – but we’re here to help!

We’re happy to announce that starting this week, our brilliant instructors Robyn Holder and Olly Otley will each be running a weekly online class of dynamic moves, creativity and family fun.

Robyn’s class, ‘Creative Movement for the Family‘ will start this Saturday 4th April 10.30- 11.20am. These sessions will be for children aged 3+,  with the aim of getting parents and kids to dance together. They will explore creative ideas, expressive tasks and new ways to move in your home with the emphasis always on fun and discovery.

Olly will lead ‘Mini Movers at Home’, which will start on Wednesday 8th April 10.30 – 11.10am. These sessions are aimed at children 18 months +. This class is a chance for grown-ups and their little ones to discover movement together and connect with other families online, through creative movement, play, and storytelling.

We will trial-run the sessions for the next four weeks, with a view to extending if they prove popular. Please find more information about the classes and how to sign up below, we hope that you will join us!

How you can support CDS:

Classes are FREE or donation based depending on your current situation. We recommend a donation of £5 per household if affordable.

We encourage anyone who can afford it to donate to support CDS and the independent artists who deliver these programmes. Please add Gift Aid if you are a UK tax payer. Click here to donate: https://www.chisenhaledancespace.co.uk/support-us/

The impact on Chisenhale Dance Space as a small independent charity is huge: by being forced to suspend programmes and close our space, and with the wider impact on our sector, we have lost both earned and grant-funded elements of our charitable business model. CDS would like to thank all staff, Members, space hirers and class participants for their continued support.

We’re in this together, we need our industry and community to come together.

If you have any questions or need assistance with Zoom, please email manager@chisenhaledancespace.co.ukUnfortunately, since we are working remotely, we are unable to receive phone calls during this period.
