Chance To Dance Reflection

Chance To Dance is an annual programme, recently running from June 2021 to June 2022, supported by Our Liverpool.

The objective was to engage 4 people who have refugee status or are seeking asylum, in oder to help them develop professional skills and become Dance Leaders and ambassadors in their community.

What We Achieved
