This project is targeted at under-achievers in reading and writing in schools (Key Stages 3-4), who are often disengaged young people within a school environment.


We are offering sessions with popular authors, including Alex Wheatle, winner of The Guardian Prize for Childrens' Literature 2016, using dance theatre workshops to animate the stories and so enable the shy and inarticulate to develop their confidence and engagement with the written word.
