Cheshire Dance is proud to work in partnership with The University of Chester.

Creative Health Simulation: “This Creative Health session with Cheshire Dance has reminded me how important TOUCH is in our work. We as nurses are privileged. People arrive as babies - we use kind gentle hands to deliver, to guide that baby into the world. And then in their passing, we must remember the last thing people may experience is our touch as they leave this world. Touch is telling a person “I’m here for you.” Jan Hardy, Senior Lecturer at Department of Public Health & Well Being at Chester University on Cheshire Dance’s Creative Health Simulation sessions to second year nursing students.
