Dance-a-thon for Erin
Posted by Kayleigh Cotton - On 2016-06-26
A massive well done and thank you to the students of Capella Academy of dance pupils who attended a dance-a -thon on Saturday 4th June which Capella Academy of dance hosted. The aim was to raise funds for one of our students. The money raised was to enable Erin to attend an Intensive Therapy Programme, Breathe Magic , in the summer. Breathe Magic is an innovative way of delivering therapy to children like Erin who have left side hemiplegia. The repetitive action of practicing magic tricks help build up strength and dexterity in the affected hand and arm, and consequently help to increase independence. The performance skills taught as part of the magical learning experience will be used to increase Erins communication skills, confidence, self-esteem and emotional wellbeing. Thank you to all the parents who came and supported the event and for all of the donations. It was a great day!!
