“When they first arrive on day one, you can see they are nervous. But, after taking part in the fun activities, they are soon relaxed and happy and eager to start at Burnt Mill full-time.”

The classes give them an introduction to dance, experience of working in groups and independently and improve their confidence, co-ordination, fitness and discipline.”
