Intact Community Project

Throughout 2016 and 2017, Blue Moose worked with INTACT community centre in Preston on an Arts Council England funded programme, developing a bespoke dance programme supporting local community members to move, be creative and connect with each other. After initial consultation with service users, we established a programme including Adult Dance Fitness classes, Chair-based exercise and Creative Street Dance classes for young people which ran for 12 months. Alongside this, we designed and delivered an Arts Award summer project empowering young people to take ownership of their local spaces, raise issues close to them and produce a Dance Film celebrating their voices, resulting in several young people gaining and Explore or Bronze level Arts Award.
