But I am forever young
Lifted & Gifted is passionate about the power of the performing arts to motivate, excite and inspire; not only in schools, but across the community. We are dedicated to bringing the joy of dance, drama and music to everyone, and for the past four years we have been working with a range of community groups to do just that. Our community workshops stimulate the mind and feed the soul, giving people from all walks of life an opportunity to express themselves. Dance classes facilitate improved strength, balance, mobility and flexibility for all ages and abilities, whilst drama classes are the perfect opportunity to explore personal and societal issues.
“People will never forget how you made them feel”
If you run a care home, day-care centre, youth hub, or mental health support unit, or simply have an urge to set up a performing arts group for fun, we would love to hear from you. Lifted & Gifted can work with you to provide a cost-effective programme of workshops to boost your community project and help put smiles on lots of faces.
See below for a selection of the workshops we can provide, or contact us for more information and a bespoke package to suit your community.
Contemporary movement for the over 60s
This programme combines gentle aerobic movement with music appreciation. It keeps the muscles moving and the heart pumping whilst being accessible to all ages and levels of ability. Making sure our participants feel comfortable and relaxed is one of our key priorities, so don’t worry, Lycra is fully optional!
Lifted & Gifted’s fun and creative improv classes are appropriate for all ages and sectors of the community. They offer the chance to enjoy freedom of movement and expression as well as an opportunity to work collaboratively and explore the power of group creation.
"When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness, because acapella singing is all about the immersion of the self into the community. That's one of the great feelings - to stop being me for a little while and to become us. That way lies empathy, the great social virtue." Brian Eno
Lifted & Gifted’s vocal harmony groups appeal to all ages, genders and social groups - a true community activity that brings people together body and heart. We explore various singing styles from classical to jazz to gospel to rock, improving technique and ability through simple exercises and lots of songs. Participants leave our vocal harmony workshops feeling connected, elevated, and joyful.
**Coming soon**: Self-esteem and confidence workshops for anyone who could use a boost.
