Three times a year the teenagers and adolescents with disabilities get together and have some fun on this very special event! SEP organizes the Dance for Youth in partnership with Sarakasi Trust. Youth from different schools and centres get an opportunity to meet, dance, learn new dance moves, get entertainment from well renowned Sarakasi entertainers, and socialise with each other in a safe environment. It takes place during morning hours to facilitate schools to attend. The event is free of charge and is open to all youth with disabilities. The numbers of attending have been growing consistently through the years. It is a great success.
So far SEP has organised 22 Dance for Youth events which have seen a total of 1,385 youth attending.
SEP continues to see a large number of youth attending the events despite the long break due to COVID-19 restrictions. Overall, Dance for Youth has been very successful in fostering social inclusion, one of SEP’s major pillars of belief.
SEP dance for youth 2023 will take place on 8th September 2023.
