At Magpie Dance everyone who takes part is empowered for life.

Working with over 400 dancers and family members every year, we deliver weekly dance classes suited for all ages and abilities – providing a friendly, accessible and fun environment in which to dance.

Our participants are not only able to explore their creativity and improve their dance skills, but also benefit their lives more broadly by reducing social isolation, enhancing their physical and mental health, and having opportunity to develop as a volunteer, mentor, and ambassador:

“Magpie Dance gives more than just a dance class for people with a disability. It gives the person a sense of pride being part of a dance group. It gives friendship and company. It improves fitness, health and mental well-being. It helps to lift depression and loneliness among people with disabilities. It gives them something to work towards and builds confidence. They feel safe and happy at Magpie Dance due to the amazing staff! It brings the parents and carers together, which helps with the whole family well-being and the community.”
