Moving Minds invites people living with dementia and their friends, family members and carers into the beautiful dance studio at York St John University for free weekly dance and creative movement classes. The sessions are a fantastic opportunity to move at your own pace to music that you love, as part of a friendly and welcoming group.
No prior dance experience is necessary; sessions are open to all level of abilities including those who need to remain seated.
Dance has been proven to have significant benefits for people living with dementia including stress reduction, improvement in mood, balance and sleep, as well as boosting social interaction and combating isolation.
Sessions are delivered by professional dance practitioners who have extensive experience in this field.
The sessions are held Wednesdays 1.30pm - 2.30pm with time for tea & coffee afterwards.
