Dance Dosti – Supporting People with Sight Loss: Free Workshop
Fitness professionals are being invited to a free online workshop to gain practical guidance on how to successfully engage people with sight loss into their physical activity sessions.
Gain practical tips on supporting people with sight loss in group dance and fitness classes.
These sessions directly respond to research that Step Change Studios undertook among 128 fitness professionals as part of their Dance Dosti programme in partnership with Metro Blind Sport.
The workshops will be delivered by Step Change Studios. The award-winning dance company is committed to making dance accessible for everyone. Supporting the workshops will be one of the company’s visually impaired students, who will be sharing her lived experience.
Their answers revealed a clear lack of inclusive training and very low confidence in supporting people with sight loss in their physical activities.
The research also showed a desire among fitpros to upskill in order to be able to work with this demographic and an acceptance that it is currently not well catered for within the leisure sector.
