Why    Lemons & Why Dance?

Est. 2019  by   inclusive Dance Artist   - David Darcy,    in response  to a   overwhelming  increase    in reports of male suicide and   with a personal feeling of helpless -    a idea was born.    From years of experience  in working across    multiple    sectors and witnessing  how  Dance can break down barriers, build  confidence, allow for creativity  and most importantly provides  oppertunity to express ourselves.    

 

Originally     lemonMEN,   a   weekly session for Men to explore    feelings  connect with others,   be   creative and Dance! With aims to   provide men with an alternative way to   commutate   while helping to   build positive attitudes towards life's difficulties and successes.

After a couple  of insightful years   in 2021  we  organically  developed   into   LemonDANCE  Community  Interest  Company  -    this simply   meaning   we  can   keep   the community  we serve  at the heart of everything we do while  having the governance   and correct procedures in place   to move forward  with  new ideas,    projects and sessions. 

 

 and in the end of 2021 saw our new session begin     -   Let'sDANCE!
