Dance to Health uses dance to help people improve or maintain their strength and balance and so help reduce falls. Independently evaluated by Sheffield Hallam University it has been shown to reduce falls by 58%. Additionally the same evaluation reported that 96% of participants had improved their mental health, 87% made new friends and 98% said they would recommend the programme to other people who have fallen or are at risk of falling.
As well as reporting the ongoing benefit of improved strength and balance that enables them to continue their everyday activities, our participants are also always keen to talk about the joy and fun that they experience in the sessions and the friendships they have made.
Our nationwide falls programme is expanding all the time and includes online sessions available regardless of geographical location.
Our programmes are tailored to meet the abilities and interest of the participants. In some classes participants may remain seated throughout while in others even the most fit and active will work up a sweat!
Our classes generally run for two hours including 90 minutes exercise and 30 minutes social time for tea, coffee and biscuits.

“Sometimes as adults we forget the importance of play and there is a sense of play in this and it's joyful”
