It’s a bright Monday morning at Tile Hill library and there’s a buzz as families start to arrive.
Today’s the second week that Wriggle Dance Theatre have held a workshop at the library. Aimed at children aged 2 – 7 they offer arts-based activities to disadvantaged areas.
Kath Kimber-McTiffen, Co-Director, said:
“These workshops are part of our research and development as we’re going to be making a new show.
“They’re getting a sensory dance movement workshop; the kids and parents really enjoy it. We get families here that otherwise aren’t able to engage in arts-based activities. It’s great for them to mix in the community and meet people.
“It’s at no cost to them so it’s accessible.”
The session lasted 45 minutes and was jam-packed, children and parents were encouraged to move, touch and play as they mingled to the music.
Following the sessions, some parents offered their feedback:
“A fantastic workshop, which was fun and very engaging. Facilitating creative play for adults and toddlers.
“I’m a teacher and loved the way the sessions were developed today. A well-structured plan from simple to more complex activities with lots of colour and textures.
The workshops, run by Wriggle Dance Theatre, were funded through the Foundation’s Coventry UK City of Culture Fund which aims to support existing and potential partners as they seek to play a full and active role in the run up to 2021.
