Dance for Joy

A community engagement project that provides young people with autism and their caregivers the space to explore creative movement and self-expression together.

For young people with autism, programmes like Dance for Joy are a big plus. What I really lik.ed about the programme is the concept of ‘meets-you-where-you-are’...because they feel they are accepted there, irrespective of the challenges they have. It helps them to relax, calm down, and reduce anxiety

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to dance. Dance for Joy provides young people with autism and their caregivers the space to explore creative movement and self-expression together, giving participants opportunities to freely explore their bodies in movement, while building on shared experiences and connections as a family unit.

Help us bring the joy and transformative impact of the arts to more as an Esplanade donor.
