This section of the project is for the more mature dancer.
Perhaps getting back to activity is the focus for individuals in this group or maintaining flexibility and ease of movement. This class uses the artistry of dance to remind us how we can feel strong and balanced whilst making beautiful and interesting shapes.
When sessions take place in the museum, participants get to explore the exhibitions which inspire Rachel’s choreography. This chance to wander the galleries generally sparks great discussion, from time to time you will find Rachel has to remind participants that they are not just there to chat!
This class has a real social element to it and from the very beginning, it has helped to form friendships and support networks, and to tackle social isolation.
Without Arts Council England, this vital work would not be possible. With their financial support we are able to help participants stay active and feel connected through heritage and culture.
