Our project "Keep It Real" is an infusion of street and African dancing, drumming and drama after school club. This a free
membership and participation service, for the young people ranging from the ages of 5 to 13 and supervisory roles from 14 to 16
years every Tuesday and Thursday during school term times from 5pm to 7pm which is currently taking place at the St Chads
Church Hall in South Norwood area. The project has been running for over a year and is gaining popularity and increase in
participating members. We support young people to have better life chances by providing free regular activities that build
confidence, self-worth, physical wellbeing and a sense of cultural awareness in the community through drumming and dancing.
Drumming and Dancing are fun, physical activities that distract people from whatever is bothering them. It can even be
meditative and induce a relaxing mental state. The youth therefore, have opportunities to safe and fun environments, where
they meet and learn with other youth from different cultures.
