A group of four Estonian young people with visual disabilities felt the need to bring their peers with similar problems together to provide them with an opportunity to expand their social activities. Their project, Dancing in Darkness, was based on two main topics: equal opportunities and social inclusion. The main activities of the project were weekly lessons of diff erent dances (line, ballroom, pilates and folk). About 30 blind young people participated in these sessions on a regular basis. The main goals of the Estonian pro ject were to gain experience of teamwork, to create a network of social assistance in Estonia and to improve self-confi dence of visually impaired people. That was achieved by off ering dance courses and the chance to get acquainted through body movement.
