Seated & Standing Exercise to Stay Active for Longer

Who is the class for?

Our classes are designed for adults who want to stay active for longer. They are particularly good for people with mobility restrictions or movement disorders at any age.

We aim to get people up and moving but we know that this isn’t always possible for everyone and no two days are the same. Our exercises are specifically designed so that they can be carried out seated or standing with low to high intensity adaptations.

What type of dance is it?

Classes explore a range of dance styles and music genres to ensure that there is something for everyone to enjoy. This term we will be learning some dances from around the world, having fun dancing to musical songs and pop hits to really get you feeling good.

How will dance help me stay mobile and active?

Our warm-up energises the body, developing mind to body pathways, keeping the body FLEXIBLE and obtaining optimal posture. The balance section develops core strength, concentration and fluidity followed by footwork and easy to follow dance phrases for coordination.

Do I need a partner?
No partner is necessary, but you are welcome to bring a friend or family member.

Can I join if I have no dance experience and two left feet?
Yes! Classes are suitable for those new to dance and challenging enough for those with previous dance experience. We welcome new members at any point in the term.
