At Cheshire Dance, we provide opportunities for older adults to live in the moment and to engage physically, socially and emotionally through movement and dance.
Of all the art forms, dance is unique in placing the body and it’s lived experience as the site of exploration and art-making. Therefore, it offers opportunities for all participants to connect to their physical-selves, to discover or rediscover their bodies, to pay attention to sensation and to connect to others throughout this process in a way that no other art form does.
The Benefits of Dance for Older People:
Dance is recognised as providing therapeutic benefit; it is a form of release and means of expression, using simple creative movements allows people to express something of their individuality, regardless of age
Cheshire Dance currently offers live and virtual opportunities for older adult to experience and engage with dance across Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East with regular classes in the community.
To find a class near you, view our ‘events’ for older adults or contact email@example.com.
