Creating Moves is a London Councils funded programme to provide educational and participatory activity for disadvantaged 5-18 year olds in 12 boroughs of London.
The programme allows young people to experience new dance forms and related arts within their school setting or as part of activities at their local youth centre, arts venue, community group or festival.
In the Autumn Term 2009 Akademi worked with Westminster Education Business Partnership to bring performance and a dance and movement programme to a special educational needs school in the borough. Akademi artists Yamuna Devi and Katie Ryan worked with a group of 19 post-16 pupils on a Bollywood and fusion project which aimed to increase positive attitudes to active health and tackle obesity. At the end of the project the group performed their piece, which was based on traditional themes and characters in Bollywood film, for their school, families and carers.
