RE:Generation

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, dna are excited to introduce our wonderful RE: Generation classes back ‘in person’ from September 2021 in all three districts.

While we remain online as 'Take A Seat', please join us for a taster for what to expect when we transition back into in-person classes. You can book a taster session via our 'Book Online' page.

Classes will include a combination of seated and standing work and can be adapted for those living with various health conditions.

Classes will deliver dance content that question, mobilise and above all offer the older people a safe environment to practice a shared endeavour.

Participants will learn about the importance of movement and dance in older age and its positive effects on the brain and body, as well as being guided in how to adapt the material for varying physical abilities.

Participants will experience and explore a broad range of creative ideas as a stimulus for dance and develop their memory for movement by learning set material, often performed in unison. We use a range of props to enhance experiences and give added creative opportunity and visual interest.

The class is topped off with time for tea, biscuits and a chat to ensure we speak with our neighbours and friends, so no one ever feels alone.

Classes in the community will return September 2021, more information and booking details coming soon, come back to check up to date information over the Summer.
