My story

[p][b]This October I want to help Countryside Mobility South West get moving![/b][/p][p]I'm Em Flint and I work for a wonderful organisation called Living Options Devon, which works to make sure Deaf or disabled people have the same opportunities and choice as everyone else. A big part of that is the freedom to move independently as you choose. [url=https://youtu.be/rG5yyzBkHZ4]Countryside Mobility helps people to access attractions and nature in the South West, with trampers, training, and consultancy. This means that friends, couples, and families can enjoy a day out all together, with no-one left at home or sitting in the car park.[/url][/p][p]As the nights draw in it's easy to get glued to the sofa, so I'm challenging myself to try 10 different styles of dance this October instead! I am not a dancer by any means, and like a lot of people I have gained some timber during lockdown... so this is a real challenge to be brave, have some fun with my body, and not worry about making a fool of myself.[/p][p]I am fortunate to have a decent range of physical mobility, and am studying to be a Somatic Therapist. I'm so interested in how movement helps our general wellbeing, especially how moving in new and creative ways can change our mood and inspire us.[/p][p]I wanted a really wide range of dance styles, especially things I had never tried (or perhaps even heard of) before, to see if I can move in ways I've never considered. So I asked my friends for their ideas... I had dozens of suggestions, but have narrowed them down to the ones I have either never tried, or feel excited about trying again.[/p][p]Here is my list:[/p][p]Belly dance (tribal)[/p][p]Bhangra[/p][p]Flamenco[/p][p]Hip hop[/p][p]Industrial[/p][p]Jazz[/p][p]Lindy hop[/p][p]Khatak[/p][p]Samba[/p][p]Zydeco[/p][p]I'm learning all of these using YouTube tutorials and will do an hour of each throughout October (more if I find one I really enjoy!)[/p][p]Please support Countryside Mobility South West if you feel moved to get more people moving for pleasure and fun - we all need as much of those as we can get. Thank you![/p]
