Deaf Jam Fitness – (Junior) Dance Workshop @ KOBY Studio
May 25 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Dance fitness for Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Deaf Jam was created by Catrina Nisbett to improve the health and well-being of the Deaf community through music, dance and social interaction. Workshops are delivered using enjoyable easy-to-follow Hip Hop style dance exercises, communicated in British Sign Language (BSL) and spoken English. Catrina is what we call in the deaf community, a ‘CODA’, a child of Deaf adults.

Leeds Deaf Children’s Society subsidises the workshop cost for it’s members.  The ‘Junior’ workshop welcomes those up to the age of 16 – contact for adult workshops starting soon.
