Big Jigsaw is Dancefest's access and inclusion programme, which aims to challenge, surprise and push boundaries in integrated dance, working with disabled and non-disabled people of all ages and abilities. Michele Holder is our Dance Development Team Leader (Access and Inclusion) and you can contact her about any aspect of our inclusive work.
Jigsaw Integrated Performance Group
An integrated group for disabled and non-disabled dancers who meet at 4.30-6.30pm on Wednesdays at Aspire Community Hub, Hereford, HR1 2EA. You can find out more on our class timetable and by contacting Michele Holder.
We can create bespoke projects for schools and colleges inspired by different themes or curriculum-based activities. Schools can be part of local cluster sharings that Dancefest organises or become part of our larger scale performance projects.
Most of the venues we use are accessible for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility but please contact the Dancefest office to check accessibility for the venue where your class takes place.
