What people say about us

“This inspired me, I would describe it as ‘destination happiness’ – an inspirational way of being. It was very moving. I’ve not see a lot of inclusive dance. I’ve got to see more!”
Richard, audience member

“Performing with SLiDE was awesome and even now brings a smile to my face that reaches out into my soul.”
Rosie, SLiDE dancer

Yasmin absolutely loves SLIDE, it is the highlight of her week! SLiDE gives my daughter the freedom to express herself. It is also a place where she has made lots of new friends. I can honestly say it has changed her life.”
Caragh, SLiDE parent

“I feel a lot happier and energetic after each session, even when I am not in the mood to dance at the beginning.”
Dance participant with Parkinson’s Disease.
