a drama and social club for children and young people with Down Syndrome from 8 yrs
This fun club runs every Monday, term time. We play drama games, communication games, act scenarios ,experiment with masks and puppets and generally build up confidence and self esteem. The group love being together and celebrating each others achievements.
The focused session runs from 5pm but social time is from 4pm , bring a packed tea if you want. Parents can leave their children or stay in a separate comfy room.
We often make short films to celebrate and advocate the joys and wonder of having an extra chromosome 21. Thanks to Kirklees Short Breaks & Children in Need for funding this project.
