WISP creates a safe and inclusive environment for young people living with Additional Needs aged 11—25 to Dance Together.
WISP has been providing Dance Experiences, Choreographic Projects and Performances for young people for over 25 years.
During this time, hundreds of young people have joined us to expand their dance experience, increase their self confidence, build lasting friendships and have loads of fun!
Currently we are providing Dance Activities that you can do from home.

Our Participants Are At The Heart Of All We Do
Since it was founded in 1994 WISP’s participants have been integral in informing our choices, provision and direction. Who better to guide us than our members and their families? Constitutionally groundbreaking at its conception WISP has included the voices of our members to help shape our provision, guide our projects and create powerful, touching and inspiring work. This ethos of empowerment and validation keeps our members at the heart of all we do, their personal achievements are affirmation of the work we do as an organisation. We are privileged to work with our inspiring young people and champion their ability to the world.
We are itching to get back out there and dance together, and you will hear it here first when we do! While we wait, we'll be dancing at home. Apart, but together.
Every dance we’ve ever done has told a story. In them we’ve travelled to India, dived underwater and danced with The Beatles. We’ve opened our hearts and souls and left everything out on stage. Because we love to dance, to express ourselves and, above all, enjoy our time together.
Without our supporters we couldn't do what we love: dance together. it's as simple as that. For every organisation, charity and individual who has ever supported us, thank you, you help make our magic happen.
