Ability dancing with Mencap’s Young Ambassadors
Northern Ballet’s Ability is taking part in an exciting project with some of Mencap’s Young Ambassadors from the region. As part of the Look Beyond the Label campaign the two groups have been meeting to create a dance piece that will be performed as part of National Mencap Day.
