Dancing with Dementia

This programme offers those living with Dementia a chance to experience creative movement and dance with their partners, friends, family and carers. 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.

The class concludes with time to chat over tea & coffee.

Unfortunately, we are not currently delivering sessions due to COVID 19 but aim to restart classes as soon as we can! We do however have online sessions you are able to purchase from our shop

The Dance Network Association's Dancing with Parkinson's programme offers dance and movement sessions to those with Parkinson’s Disease and their partners, friends and carers. We are proud that this programme not only delivers high-quality dance to participants but also allows their loved ones to experience it alongside them. 

Forever Young – Over 60’s Performance group

This programme offers a further development from the RE: Generation classes for those who wish to perform and visit new people spaces through dance and movement. Confidence and ideas are shared and explored through interaction with intergenerational groups and access to artistic projects such as photographic installations, films and live sharings. 

We are currently not delivering this programme due to COVID 19
