Dancing is widely recognised as a one of the best activities to improve people’s health and quality of life. Studies have also shown that it can help reduce the risk of dementia and alzheimer’s in later years. Please find below details of free dance activity sessions for Dacorum residents that we offer, with our partners. These are mainly aimed at older adults or those with low mobility (although they are not age restricted and anyone is welcome to join any of the sessions) and are fun and sociable.  No dance experience is necessary.

Wake Up and Dance!
At 9am each weekday morning on Zoom, enjoy ten minutes of dancing online to a variety of tunes from across the decades. Each morning a Wake Up and Dance host will welcome everyone, play three songs which you can dance to at home in any way you choose (with your camera on or off).  It’s a chance to connect with others, get moving and start the day positively. The sessions run throughout the year and are for all ages.  Here’s a very short video of the benefits it has brought to one of the participants
