Who we are
Our school workshop packages celebrate both cultural diversity and our common roots. While the children have fun creating music, visuals and dance from African, South American and Indian cultures they develop teamwork, thinking skills, coordination and concentration. Children learn best when they think they’re playing, our approach combines fun with education so everyone enjoys a Global Grooves adventure.
What we do
Global Grooves are passionate about providing a platform for the next generation of talented young artists and community leaders to shine. Our diverse programme of work with young people includes residential Carnival arts training, distance mentoring, work experience placements, school workshops, hands-on performance opportunities, one-to-one tuition, and more.
Bringing culture to you
Our Tameside-based workspace at The Vale offers access to a fully equipped Carnival fabrication studio space, as well as volunteering and trainee opportunities to nurture skills and encourage participants to explore their future prospects. Our desire to strengthen the UK Carnival sector has brought people together in both Northwest-focused projects and national training initiatives.
FUTURE LEADERS … an innovative training programme in music, dance, and visual arts for young artists aged 12-25. The course involves 4 residential weeks/weekends, between October 2018 and April 2019.
