NFA Group was thrilled to work on a very exciting project with Unity Dance Company UK (you may know them from Britain’s Got Talent and Got to Dance!) with some of our highly talented Looked After Children.
We have been providing updates, which ran for over 6 weeks; you might have seen some of our other posts of their journey. The commitment and dedication demonstrated by the children throughout the project was colossal and their determination to learn the new skills was an absolute inspiration.
Some of the children had dance experience before this project, but all of the children made massive progress and took to street dance naturally. At every point in the project, support and teaching came from Unity UK’s Director and Choreographer, Tashan Muir. The children became highly skilled street dancers in a matter of weeks under Tashan's expert guidance.

On the 14th of February at the North London Children’s Achievement Awards, in front of an audience of over 200, the group performed their polished dance at the Stratford Circus Arts Centre to rapturous applause. This was the first time many of the children had ever performed in public!
After the performance the trophies and certificates were presented to commemorate the event and to look back at the hard work and dedication the Children exercised to achieve their goal. The end product is this inspirational video, powered by the positive attitudes of the dance team who can take so many positives form the whole experience.
On behalf of everyone we would like to say a massive Thank You to all at Unity Dance Company, our wonderful carers, our carer engagement officer Kate Davis and most of all our fantastic performers.
We hope to bring you more exciting projects like this very soon!
