Campaign: To highlight the many benefits of dance for those facing adversity

I’ve been dancing since I was very young and absolutely love it.

 

But I thought that my performing days were over after I was shot in the head six years ago while walking home with my friends.

 

Doctors said I was lucky to survive, but the incident really affected my self-esteem and I became socially withdrawn.

 

Thankfully, I found the courage to start dancing again, which gave me the confidence boost I needed to move on with my life.

 

My team and I are working with Fixers to show other young people that no matter what you’ve been through, creative arts could help you overcome it.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix: 

 

Akiam Solomon Leigha Aldridge
Amy Hughes Liam Daley
Daisy Gill Lois O'Brien
Darby Griffiths Luke Bolan
Darcie Chazen Stead Marky Devine
Emily Pickett Philippa Ellison
