Additional needs performing arts group opens new centre in West Bridgford


Following the success of its Leicestershire programme, FTM Dance is now bringing its performing arts services to young people and adults in Nottinghamshire.

Activities are designed to help participants meet developmental goals and gain independence, all while getting moving, having fun and making connections.

The West Bridgford classes will be run from the West Bridgford Young Peoples Centre.

Ahead of its opening, the FTM team is offering a sneak peek to local young people and children with additional needs and their carers – inviting them to a virtual open day on Saturday 10thApril.

Leanne Evans, founder of FTM Dance says: “We’re incredibly excited to bring our activities, clubs and workshops to Nottinghamshire.

“Instead of passive care for those with additional needs and disabilities, our services introduce a positive, person-led approach which is proven to inspire and engage – helping participants get creative and have fun. Whether it’s respite care for families, or positive experiences for young people, we’re bringing a wide range of benefits to the people of West Bridgford and beyond.”


FTM will provide weekend and holiday clubs, 1-1 and 2-1 support and local transport for those who need it. The sessions will be run by experienced staff who are fully trained in line with Care Quality Commission standards. The new classes will also mean new employment opportunities for local specialists in the area.

Leanne continued: “After supporting over 600 children and young adults across Leicestershire to achieve their creative potential, we’re looking forward to welcoming new members and watching them grow through our FTM programmes of creative care.”

To access the classes, FTM accepts private and local authority referrals. Visit www.ftmdance.co.uk for more information.
