Dance to Health is a nationally significant project lead by AESOP that combines the creativity and social aspects of dance with the proven health benefits of physiotherapy to reduce falls amongst older people by up to 55%.
Dance to Health in Cheshire is delivered by professional dance artists from Cheshire Dance at a variety of community venues, including church halls and leisure facilities. Cheshire Dance has supported its Dance to Health groups to become self-sustaining beyond the project funding timescales.
