Wriggle Jobs



Wriggle Dance Theatre are looking for 3 volunteers to assist in the delivery of a dance and movement project for Early Years and families in Northampton in Spring 2017. Funded by Northamptonshire County Council, ‘Connect, Move and Get Fit!’ is a health project aimed at families with pre-school children living in urban areas of Northampton who find it difficult to meet and make friends and experience a sense of isolation due to language barriers, financial restraints or are refugees, migrants or lone parents.

The project will run for 10 weeks in 3 Northampton Libraries, culminating in a sharing on the 11th week at Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton. Weekly sessions in each library will consist of a programme of activities aimed at improving both physical and mental health of the participants using dance and creative movement, with the sharing providing an opportunity to bring the 3 groups together.

The volunteer will shadow and support the session leader in the delivery of the project, with opportunities to input into the planning process and assist in the sharing. Other duties may include helping with collecting monitoring information and taking video/photos of the project.
