Inclusive Dance during MS Awareness Week
Inclusive dance instructor Anisha Gangotra teaches in High Wycombe (Bucks) and Maidenhead (Berkshire). She teamed up with the MS Trust, a national charity that supports people affected by multiple sclerosis, for MS Awareness Week 2019 to get people dancing. The inclusive dance-along was streamed on Wednesday 24th April, with people from across the country taking part to embrace ‘moving with MS’. Anisha has two sisters living with MS so she knows first-hand the impact the condition can have.
Anisha says, ‘The great thing about inclusive dance is that it’s accessible for all. I have students with disabilities and long-term conditions dancing alongside people without disabilities. Everyone can have a go at their own pace and do what they feel is comfortable. It’s amazing to see the progress my students have made physically and mentally since they began dancing with me. They tell me I’ve changed their lives by creating a space where they can dance, feel free and where there’s no judgement – we just have a brilliant time dancing together!’.
