Moving Together

Moving Together is a creative dance and movement project offering sessions to adults who have long term health conditions. Sessions are fully accessible and inclusive to all. You have the option of sitting as and when you need, and resting as required. The sessions are open to all levels of ability, no prior dance experience is necessary.  You are welcome to join us if you are undergoing treatment, as long as your medical professional advises this. Sessions are suitable for MS, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Cancer and Rheumatoid conditions.

Over the last 10 years this specially devised programme has predominantly been delivered in community settings. It remains a popular, meaningful and thoroughly enjoyable way to spend time with peers and can be delivered in (but not exclusively) day care, residential care homes and retirement villages.
