Dance Factor Lincolnshire (Inspire Dance)
The project will engage 875 young people through the medium of dance, from the City of Lincoln, North and South Kesteven, East and West Linsey, Boston and South Holland. Dance Factor Lincolnshire involves a 10 week programme of street dance sessions for young people aged 11-18 across 35 locations on Thursday and Friday evenings, targeting socially deprived and/or isolated areas.
