SEND Classes, courses, workshops & parties

Synergy Dance® Outreach provides dance, movement, yoga, art, cookery, food and nutrition workshops and fitness classes for all ages and abilities. We are fully inclusive and offer both mainstream and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) programs.

Our fun and exciting classes, workshops and parties can be tailored to your wishes. The following packages are available:

SEND Classes & Workshops

Synergy SEND Dance and Movement™ Workshop (aged 6–12 years, 12+ and adults)

An inclusive Dance Movement class for SEND participants inspired to stimulate imaginative dance, build confidence, strengthen co-ordination and nurture a quality environment where participants can relax, make friends and be creative!

Participants will explore group and partner formations, themed movement, dance games, contact improvisation, including fun props and signage and imaginative play. We will ensure a safe and effective class to explore dance and music in a fun and upbeat atmosphere. The course will focus on developing each person’s range of movement, expanding their skill base and gaining self-confidence. Instructors are experienced in working with groups where verbal communication is limited.

Synergy SEND Dance and Movement™ – Sit and Be Fit for children, juniors, teens and adults

We provide an inclusive dance movement class for SEND participants inspired to stimulate imaginative dance, build confidence, strengthen co-ordination and nurture a quality environment where participants can relax, make friends and be creative!

Synergy SEND Dance and Movement™ (Mental Health) children and adults

Taught by specialist instructors for participants with mental health issues, we provide an inclusive dance movement class for SEND participants inspired to stimulate imaginative dance, build confidence, strengthen co-ordination and nurture a quality environment where participants can relax, make friends and be creative!

Synergy SEND Dance and Movement™ (MS/Parkinsons) Adults

Taught by specialist instructors for MS/Parkinsons, we provide an inclusive dance movement class for SEND participants inspired to stimulate imaginative dance, build confidence, strengthen co-ordination and nurture a quality environment where participants can relax, make friends and be creative!

Synergy SEND Yoga and Wellbeing™ – juniors and teens

A Synergy Yoga and Wellbeing class is the perfect pause and chance to stretch and relax. An excellent way to relieve stress, recharge and learn new skills within your range of movement. Where applicable, participants will build core stability, resistance and toning, improving posture and well-being.

Synergy SEND Art and Dance™ – juniors and teens

Participants experience art and dance in one workshop – exploring both movement and artistic expression through many different mediums such as paint, charcoal, pencil, water colour, acrylic and collage. Our trained and expert art therapist will help participants to both experience movement and fitness and art and music – these sessions also suit participants with Alzheimer’s disease.

Lunchtime SEND classes

Our 45-minute lunchtime sessions in schools target inactive children who may especially benefit from an inclusive and specialist dance and movement class. Lunchtime Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) support is available.

These sessions also provide a positive re-charge for mainstream pupils to nurture confidence, teamwork and companionship for children who would benefit from extra support. For example, we provide a positive and inclusive movement class for any children who have reported incidences of bullying in school breaks or ‘friendship exclusion’, who would benefit from additional supervision during staff break times. The ethos of our work is to celebrate and respect the fact that each person is unique.

SEND Parties

Special considerations

When planning our courses, we have taken into consideration the following points:

  • Sensory processing issues with loud noises – music will be played at a level suitable for all
  • Simple and clear instructions, with visual supports for those with learning difficulties or who require an extra visual prompt
  • Depending on the age and SEN/disability of the child or adult, classes may be split to enable better support of individual needs
  • In schools: Sessions preferably to take part at the beginning of a school week to limit attending when children are more tired at the end of the week
  • Sessions will take place at venues which are able to cater for car parking and access needs.
