AllPlay Move: Dance
We want to break down barriers to inclusion in dance and play for all children
AllPlay Move: Dance brings a scientific methodology to an investigation of the benefits of dance for children with disabilities and developmental challenges. This approach is coupled with work by dance experts to develop inclusive dance programs. Inclusion in community-based dance programs has the potential to support physical and cognitive functioning and to promote wellbeing particularly because of its physical, social and creative elements.
AllPlay Move: Dance aims at increasing opportunities for children with developmental challenges and disabilities to be included in dance. We are listening to children, parents and teachers and working with peak bodies and government agencies to make sure inclusion happens.
You will find information, practical tips and strategies, dance stories and videos for dance teachers, dance schools/companies, health professionals, parents and children of all abilities. These strategies have been developed using the best available evidence and by hearing from over 300 people in the community, including individuals with disabilities, families, dance teachers, dance schools and peak dance bodies.
