The Community Association for West Hampstead is a community led organisation set up to improve the quality of life of everyone living in the West Hampstead area.
The West Hampstead Community Centre is a fabulous hub for the community to come together and take part in a range of fun and exciting activities from street dance to social groups or art classes.
The Older Peoples’ Outreach Project aims to help people remain active, healthy and independent. The project works in partnership with GP’s, district nurses, residential homes and sheltered housing units to try and locate those people who may be becoming lonely or isolated.
There is currently a new class being offered for children which will
be all about building confidence, getting to know each and having fun with drama. Students will create improvisations and mime, work with scripts, learn technique, play drama games and develop the voice. All this will improve listening, confidence, spontaneity and the imagination. Drama is extremely important for developing language skills and concentration.
Age 4 – 6 at 4.00pm to 4.45pm
Age 7 – 11 at 5 to 5.45pm
Age 12 – 16 at 5.45pm to 6.30pm
