Centrestage Communities

Look through the Centrestage Communities website for your latest updates on projects, events, shows and news.

Centrestage Communities delivers assets and strengths focussed activities to individuals and communities, many living with multiple deprivations, using the arts and enterprise as the main tools for raising aspiration, achievement, inclusion and community capacity. All of our projects aim to build on the knowledge and skills of all participants whilst developing their individual and collective strengths.


Reach Out is a drop in class tailored for adults with a wide range of support needs.  This informal, sociable and high energy class is full of music, creative movement and laughter. Our Rising Stars group is for children aged 6-14 years. Here, the high ratio of leaders to children allows the participants to express themselves safely & creatively in a supportive and fun environment. 

Aspire2Dance, Aspire Act, Aspire2Perform and Aspire2Create are classes for those aged 14yrs to adult who, through the dedicated support of the Centrestage  leaders become incredibly confident participants in regular performances allowing them to attain improved physical fitness alongside greater skills of communication, team work, self control and motivation.

As well as informal showcases throughout the year, participants in Rising Stars and Aspire also devise and perform in the annual Centrestage pantomime and in Summer 2015 will have the opportunity to be part of the summer school production of “Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat”

Unite workshops are also delivered in local special schools.
