What We offer


Weekly Classes

Inclusive Training



Parable Dance provides workshops for disabled children, young people and adults on a project basis for schools, colleges, day centres and other organisations.  

Workshops are tailored to suit the needs of each group we meet.  

Workshops are taught with an emphasis on ability not disability. Participants are encouraged to share their creative ideas working together as a supportive group encouraging; self-awareness, cooperation, confidence and communication skills. 

Workshops are taught by the Artistic Directors and a team of highly experienced inclusive dance practitioners.   

If you have links with other schools or organisations, you may wish to split the cost of your booking by arranging a collaborative project. 

If you book a series of workshops, you may choose to focus on a performance, the aim being to share the work with an audience on the final session. Arrangements can also be made for a DVD or professional photos of your project or performance to be made. 

Book for a full day @ £250* or contact us to discuss hourly and half day rates.  

*Costs are for workshops based Sussex and London. Quotes may be arranged for locations further afield. Administration fees may also be added based on the length of the project and quantity of written feedback/ report writing required.

My sincere thanks for your professional and creative support for what was both a very enjoyable and uplifting project/performance for students and audience alike.
