In August 2020, in partnership with PlayInNewcastle and Street Games, Dance City delivered free dance workshops to 55 young people in various locations across Newcastle.

These hour-long ‘Dancing in the Street’ classes were held weekly over the period of Newcastle and Gateshead’s ‘Summer of Change’.

Feedback from partners

Thank you with all my heart for your full immersion in this project. It was so, so worthwhile and really great to see the children enjoying themselves so utterly at the site. It was everything I imagined it would be.’

Thank you so much for the efforts of your staff and yourself to ensure the project has run smoothly and it was such an exciting day for our pupils.’

‘Dance enables people to reconnect with their youth. It is a way of bringing people together to help overcome feelings of social isolation and low mood. People have fun together, and dance is the ideal activity to maintain and improve their health and wellbeing.’
