Dance4u uses a humanistic approach...
this suggests that humans should be viewed holistically not reductively and a persons behaviour is influenced by their environment. Individuals are conscious of past and present, they have the right to make informed decisions concerning self.
Dance4u use a range of modalities within sessions such as, music, art, fancy dress, roleplay, drama, toys and lights and much more... Every individual is special and not every group of people enjoy the same things, Dance4u collaborates with others in order to meet the needs of the clients.
