Spotlight: Andrea Swainson

‘My Wednesday sessions with SLiDE are the highlight of my week. We have been exploring some of the SLiDE’s value’s this term and looking at connections, togetherness and empowerment. I’m always amazed at the groups willingness to give everything a try and experiment which makes the sessions really playful and exciting. I feel privileged to be working with such a great group of dancers and surrounded by a great team and community’
