Project 21: Colchester dancers with Down's syndrome take centre stage
A musical theatre group is giving people with Down's syndrome the chance to shine and show "just how great they are".
Alex Munn, founder of Project 21, said: "I wanted to give them a platform and a voice."
Down's syndrome, which results in some degree of learning disability, is caused by an extra chromosome in a person's cells.
"We're all about raising awareness and the profile of people with Down's syndrome because they are an integral part of our community," Ms Munn said.
One dancer, Rebecca, 20, said: "We're always a good group full of different abilities throughout."
The project runs weekly dance workshops in Ipswich and Colchester.
