Ambulant over 60s

Dance Capers – dance to keep you mobile and feeling great

These fun classes are for over 60s who are physically mobile but lack the ability to move quickly. The carefully planned classes are fun, social and beneficial for physical health, brain stimulation and overall wellbeing.

Enjoy a variety of dance styles and flavours to a broad range of great music.  Experience Jazz, Broadway, Circle Dance, Partner dances, Bollywood and more. This class is about getting fit and healthy while having a great time and meeting others.  It’s about what you can do not what you can’t.

Whilst the class is foremost about dance, classes also address concerns such as balance, flexibility, coordination, mobility, confidence, brain stimulation, social isolation, and general quality of life in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
