The Remix company members meet at a variety of venues across Dorset including Weymouth College, Dorchester Corn Exchange, the Allendale Centre and the Verwood Hub. We also organise theatre trips to Poole Lighthouse and Weymouth Pavilion.
Each group has a friendly and inviting atmosphere where disabled and non-disabled young people with a love of performance have fun together.
We currently offer the following sessions on a monthly basis and during school holidays:
Premix West: for 7-11 year olds in Dorchester and Weymouth
*New for September 2022* Premix East: for 7-11 year olds in Wimborne
Remix East and Remix West: for 12-18 years olds in Dorchester, Weymouth, Verwood and Wimborne
Remix The Originals: for young adults aged 18-25 years in Dorchester, Weymouth, Verwood, Wimborne and Poole
The Remix and The Premix are led by Artistic Director Aimee Hobbs. Aimee is a dance artist and has been working with the company for many years. She is a fantastic tutor, knowing intuitively how to challenge the children and young people yet at the same time ensuring they are supported every step of the way. We also invite theatre and music artists to lead workshops throughout the year, giving our young people a chance to enjoy other art forms.
The care support team is led by Care Manager Kayleigh Millett, who has worked with children and young people for over 10 years. The team have vast experience, many of whom work full-time as teaching assistants in special schools across the county. They all hold DBS enhanced certificates and an emergency first aider is present at all workshops.
Following government guidance on short breaks for young people, we were pleased to return to in-person classes in May 2020. We continue to provide a safe environment for our company members and staff team with extra safety measures and precautions in place.
