Barrow in Furness 2015 - 2016 - 2017

MAKE Your MOVE project
A project led by and for local people in Hindpool and Central ward to develop their skills and talents through an inspiring programme of moving and making classes and family event with local and national artists Karen Hall and Manuela Benini.

MAKE your MOVE PROJECT was a two-year projectled by and for local people living in the most deprived areas in Barrow.  The programme gave opportunity to identify and develop Community Champions to sustain the activity beyond current funding.  The project also gave an opportunity for a local committee to lead the project supported by DARE DANCE.  The first year included weekly dance classes for families and adults, an Ugly Bug Ball and Carnival with families at Brisbane Park Infant School.  Year two engaged with a wider local group connected to Ramsden Infant School building a programme with local people.  Highlights included dance classes for parent and toddler and whole families, making costumes and decorations for calendar events and a finale Carnival.
