Empowering people through theatre, dance and film

Blue Apple was founded in 2005. Through the skills and enhanced confidence gained through the arts we seek to change the way people see and understand learning disability.

Further, to raise the ceiling of expectation for people with learning disabilities.

We provide a programme of dance & drama sessions tailored to individual needs for over 70 people. All activity is designed to build and sustain improved confidence and physical and mental wellbeing while, at the same time, producing exciting, engaging and inspiring art.
