Touch Compass Dance Trust runs an integrated dance programme called Encompass, that offers integrated dance classes and workshops for students with and without a disability. The dance style taught is contemporary dance and contact improvisation.

Workshops are best suited to schools with a Special Education Unit that can combine with non-disabled students, or Special Education schools. Touch Compass workshops provide a fantastic opportunity for students from mainstream classes to interact with students from special education classes. School workshop series may finish with a public performance at the school.

The Company is also available for presenting schools performances. For further information please call Touch Compass.
