VERSE-atility – A music and dance project for young carers.

Shropshire inclusive Dance were invited by the Hive to be part of this exciting and rewarding music and movement project. SiD’s outreach team led by Anna Belyavin worked alongside fantastic musicians from The Hive to facilitate workshops where young carers could compose, record and choreograph a piece – all in a week!

The project, funded by Youth Music, began with a series of music and dance workshop tasters to groups of young carers throughout Shropshire. Those young people interested in the project and free to spend a week at the Hive signed up. The young people grew in confidence over the weeks activity. Working with dance and music offered time for the young people which was social, fun, creative and challenging.

The young people, musical and dance facilitators worked hard together as a very special team creating a supportive environment full of creativity.

The young carers say that the most important thing for them is “to be around other people who have a lot in common with us” and “to be able to express myself creatively, without judgement”.

Phase one of the project culminated in a brilliant performance by the young people.

We feel the footage in the film below and the accompanied images speak much louder then words. Sit back and enjoy.
