Program Description


“…and we’ve just heard the most extraordinary stories about how some of the people who hadn’t even been standing are up and dancing…”
-James Mackenzie-Blackman Executive Director New Adventures & Re:Bourne, Dance For Life Mini-Documentary

“…the carer’s role will be left at home for a few hours each week and the classes will help improve carer and non-carer relationships.”

“The classes create the opportunity to socialize with like-minded people, benefit from improved mental and physical wellbeing and most importantly have fun in a high quality, energizing dance class.”

Dementia dance classes are designed for carers and those in the early stages of Dementia to share a creative experience together.

Dance For Life has delivered dementia dance classes in several care homes and was nominated for the ‘Outstanding Dementia Care Innovation Award’ at the National Dementia Care Awards 2016.

DanceEast has created other dance classes including Hospice Dance Days and Dance for Parkinson’s.
