Welcome…

Do you think your dancing days are over?
Well don’t give up just yet!

Come and join one of our weekly Dancing for Well-Being groups in the Harrogate district – you may find just what you’re looking for.

Dancing for Well-Being is ideal if you find other dancing or exercise classes too much, for example, if you have mobility or balance problems, if you use a walking aid or a wheelchair, or if you find co-ordination or remembering moves difficult.

  • You can dance SITTING or STANDING
  • You can move at the level to suit your abilities and limitations
  • You don’t need a partner
  • You don’t need a good memory

A growing body of research is showing how dancing improves physical and emotional well-being in later years. It’s been shown to be beneficial for people with a number of conditions including arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, dementia and depression.

Dancing for Well-Being is good exercise, it’s gentle and safe, it’s great for company and friendship, it’s relaxing and uplifting, but most important of all it’s FUN!
