Y-Not Arts

At Y-Not Arts we believe that their are NO barriers to participation in the creative arts.  Each week we create a fun and relaxed environment for all the students and staff to participate in music, dance and drama, culminating in an end of year performance – not to be missed!!

Listen to what we have done

For their production of Alice in Wonderland the students from Y-Not composed their own "Party Song". They first thought of ideas associated with going to a party and these became the lyrics. They then used the natural shape of these words to produce a melody. All the members of the centre were involved in creating the song and the actions that went with it.

After the production, the students got another opportunity to perform the song as part of the Big Sing Centre Celebration at the Derngate in June 2010. They were the stars of the show.

So successful was this live performance that it was decided to make an audio recording. This short video clip shows the students in the recording studio listening to the playback of the the first rough-mix, and some of them recording their own tracks.

At the playback, the centre members were so excited that they just joined in again.
