Bromley-based charity Magpie Dance was founded in 1985 by its current Artistic & Executive Director Avril Hitman. The organisation benefits over 3,000 people with learning disabilities, their families and care networks, and audiences annually.
“I can’t believe how lucky we are to have found this group” Magpie Dance parent
The Magpie method is not about a ‘one size fits all’ approach, but a realisation of the potential that exists in each individual person to progress their skills way beyond the expected. Magpie dancers, aged from 8 to 60+, gain opportunities through high quality programmes in participation (over 350 sessions annually with live music accompaniment), performance and training.
Magpie's mission is 'Unlocking individual potential and ability, to be at the forefront of dance for people with learning disabilities'.
