This project is being delivered by Yorkshire Dance. Nisha Lall is team teaching alongside Adele Wragg, Tara Baker and Lucy Haighton to deliver creative multi-disciplinary arts activities leading to a residents & children meet up every half term.
Having musicians Ella Sprung, Heather & Simon Dumpleton in the sessions are a wonderful addition to the project reinforcing how song and music has a positive impact on the wellbeing of care home residents.
