Dance Workshop Volunteer

Columcille is a day support service for adults with learning disabilities based in Morningside. Our Friday afternoon Biodanza dance session is a very popular activity. Biodanza is an inclusive and joyful type of movement that everyone can participate in. We are looking for someone to volunteer alongside our paid staff to help support people to participate fully and enjoy the session. There is also a karaoke singing session that ends the afternoon where service users take turns to sing.
