Dancer and teacher Maiya Leeke treated Teamwork’s service users to four days of rehearsals and dance, which culminated with performances on the Corby Cube’s stage.

 A group of more than 20 people from Teamwork Trust – a Northamptonshire charity and social enterprise which works with and supports autistic adults, people with learning disabilities and individuals with mental health needs – were treated to this experience of a lifetime and invited to rehearse and perform at the Corby Cube.

The sessions were organised and co funded by Made with Many, a community-led arts programme also based in Corby.

Candoco Dance Company was founded in 1991, developed out of integrated workshops at London's Aspire Centre for Spinal Injury and quickly grew into the first company of its kind in the UK – a professional dance company focused on the integration of disabled and non-disabled artists.

Maiya, commonly found flipping he wheelchair upside down, said: “Bringing dance and disability together is a huge privilege and I’ve just loved dancing with and getting to know such wonderful Teamwork Trust members.”

The response from Teamwork’s service users was unanimously and overwhelmingly positive.

“One of the best things ever.”

“I just loved this experience – totally unlike anything else I’ve done.’

“Can we do this again please?”
