Mental Health

We are both passionate about mental health, having had experiences with it ourselves. Mental health is portrayed as a taboo subject, especially in the BAME community. Dancing has helped us get through some difficult times and we wanted to use our platform to raise awareness about this issue and help the community.

We released our first series of Jodi Dancers Talks in 2020 where we provided a platform for people to speak openly about their experiences and on-going struggles. We spoke to some amazing people who were also passionate about raising awareness for mental health.

We are now in partnership with Dudley Mind who are a brilliant organisation that help people suffering from mental health in the local area. They do amazing work and we were privileged enough to have them attend one of our classes and do a talk to our members.

Supporting Local Businesses

Not only do we work to raise awareness about mental health, we also like to support local businesses within the area. As a small group ourselves we understand the hard work that goes into starting up from scratch and sustaining it over a long period of time. We have worked with many great small businesses and are lucky enough to have one as our partner, Lion Lens.
