Denecia Allen, aged 18, born with cerebral palsy is a huge part of our CPotential family having accessed our services for many years now, and we’re so excited and very proud to hear that she will be performing live at Sadlers Well Theatre this week.

Denecia is doing great in Conductive Education. We’re working on standing, walking and transitions. During the sessions she is always making jokes and makes sure everyone is happy, she is a real motivator!!! Will Van Woerdekom, Conductor at CPotential

Representing the all-inclusive dance company icandance, Denecia will be performing with Alice Bellini, a dancer with the English National Ballet, Winner of the 2018 People’s Choice Award and Finalist in Emerging Dancer 2019. They have been invited to perform their very emotional duet of Reunion at the Children Today Charity Gala:

Empower in Motion at Sadler’s Wells on 7th February 2024. Book tickets here.

This is a guest event of inclusive movement, bringing together disabled and non-disabled dancers to tell a moving and inspiring story of unity, resilience and the transformative power of art.

Featuring a cast of extraordinary dancers, Stopgap Dance Company will be involved in performing some of their work that has been touring and celebrating inclusive dance for over a decade. Further involvement with other organisations includes icandance, Parable Dance’s and National Youth Ballet’s All In! company, which is another area of inclusive dance that everyone is so proud to be showcasing.

Through mesmerising performances, the show challenges the limitless potential of the human spirit.

Costumes for Denecia and Alice will be exclusively designed by Victoria Jenkins, award-winning adaptive designer, disability advocate, speaker and writer.

Tickets are still available, so you can book here. 

Good luck Denecia, and the whole cast x
