Dancing With Dementia

"Residents love their 'Dancing With Dementia' sessions with dna. The residents have a great time and we love seeing you every week!"

Dancing With Dementia

These classes are now back up and running in the community.

‘Dancing with Dementia’ classes offer a chance for participants to experience creative movement and dance with their companions. Classes focus on stimulation of the brain through movement, repetition, props and musical timelines. These factors offer the opportunity to keep the mind alert whilst also unlocking support for general well-being.

Sessions run for 1.5 hours in total which includes a 45 - 60 minute dance class and concludes with a social over tea & coffee.
