MDI Announce Free Dance Classes as part of the Learning Revolution.
Merseyside Dance Initiative’s (MDI) ambition is to get the people of Merseyside moving and grooving. They have joined up with the Learning Revolution to offer Free Dance Classes throughout October on their MDI Classes, supported by Arts Council England.
We all like to learn new things, go to new places and meet new people. The Learning Revolution Festival celebrates all kinds of informal adult learning and the difference learning makes to individuals, communities and organisations.
Throughout October, hundreds of events will highlight the wide variety of learning that’s taking place. The month will give people who already taking part in informal learning a chance to celebrate what they enjoy and others the opportunity to try something new.
As part of MDI’s Hope Street classes they offer a unique opportunity to learn the moves of dance techniques from all around the world with Bollywood, African, Capoeira and Salsa classes taught by experienced and qualified teachers.
It’s all part of the Learning Revolution – a movement to open up opportunities and highlight the real benefits of learning for enjoyment, personal development and community development. To find your nearest Learning Revolution Festival event or find out how you can encourage others to get involved, go to www.direct.gov.uk/learningrevolution.
Learners – a chance to celebrate what you enjoy or enjoy something new.
