Charlie Blair

Charlie Blair

Founder , The Blair Academy
Charlie Blair is the Founder of The Blair Academy, a social enterprise which combats loneliness in the elderly community, promoting physical and mental health through hip hop dance. Reaching over 5,000 people across care homes, day centres and homeless shelters, the Blair Academy strengthens communities and bridges generational gaps by providing mobile and inclusive classes. Taking inspiration from her own experiences as a dancer, a homeless teenager, and working in care homes, Charlie was drawn to hip hop for its characteristic embracing of individuality.
