Creative dance classes for older adults based in Colchester, Chelmsford and Brentwood

Through the generous support of the National Lottery, Brentwood Borough Council and Colchester Voluntary Welfare Grant, Coop East of England Community Cares Fund, Active Essex and Essex County Council dna are excited to introduce our wonderful RE: Generation classes back ‘in person’ from September 2021 in all three districts.


Our RE: Generation classes welcome anyone who identifies as being in the older age range. By combining dance and movement in a sociable, enjoyable and welcoming environment, these sessions can help you remain mobile and feel the very positive effects for both body and mind that dance can provide. We combine seated and standing activities, and use props to help extend your range of movement so that everything we do can be adapted for you and your physical ability and confidence. If you live with a particular health condition, you can still take part. Together, we will make and learn dances to nurture your creativity, brain function and memory. And at the end of the session, we top it off with tea, biscuits and a chance to chat with neighbours and make friends to ensure you feel part of your community. Carers and loved ones are always welcome to attend.

Did you know that we also deliver specific classes for people living with conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease or dementia? If you’re interested in joining these groups or learning more please click over to our adult page and you can see direct links to Dementia and Parkinson's classes.

All RE:Generation classes last for 45 - 60 minutes of dancing finishing in a social with refreshments.
All classes cost £5.00 per participant.
