The aim of Amberliegh is to use creative and performing arts to empower children to build up self confidence and self esteem by participating in public performances including drum and dance. We provide a safe place for all the children to practice drum and dance and other musical activities at regular weekly classes, where they learn to work in partnership and without discrimination.
Laurette Josiah is the founder member and artistic director of Amberliegh. She delivers the regular Thursday and Saturday music, drum and dance practice sessions. She is supported by Akunna Skeete who used to deliver her own drum and dance project, which was registered as a charity in 1989.
There are approximately 5 active volunteers who are CRB checked and regularly contribute their time during projects, performances and the regular Thursday and Saturday classes.
