About Exim Dance Company CIC
Exim Dance Company CIC are dedicated to reducing barriers to regular participation in dance for young people of all ages marginalised as a result of their disadvantages in life (whether due to social deprivation, disability, special learning needs, vulnerability due to care arrangements or otherwise), enabling disadvantaged and disabled young people of all ages to participate regularly in dance activities and providing these young people with skills (e.g. leadership skills) to help them in their future lives.
We work in communities across Devon where our projects can have most effect, helping to explore & support the growth of dance as a healing practice, support mechanism and an educational tool to achieve specific social outcomes.
Through our work we have seen how dance really can change lives of young people and how important creating space for them to express themselves through dance really is; without our groups, the majority of these young people would have no other access to physical activity outside of school. For those who attend it is an opportunity to engage socially as well as offering a safe space to help with any difficulties the young people may be facing in their lives including depression and self harming.
All Exim staff are Plymouth based, living within the areas we are working in so understand the importance of building stronger communties.
Exim Dance Company CIC currently run 25 weekly projects across Plymouth engaging 350 people on a weekly basis in a variety of settings from Schools, Colleges, Universities, Youth and Community Centres.
Our current projects include The Making Waves Project, which provides free weekly technique and creative classes for year 9+ students who are considering higher education. This training programme will prepare young people for studying dance at college and/or University. Another project is ADAPT Youth Dance Company where a two hour weekly dance sessions is provided for those with hidden and physical disabilities. Ernesettle Youth Dance Company provides two hour weekly sessions for females with disadvantaged and deprived backgrounds in the deprived area of Ernesettle, Plymouth.
