We are a team of passionate and highly experienced dance artists, educators and community practitioners with expert skills and knowledge in working with older people. We combine scientific evidence that demonstrates the health benefits of dance, with our passion and expertise.
We see dance as an elixir for life! Dance offers a myriad of benefits especially transforming the health and wellbeing of older people. This transformative power has a positive ripple effect on families, friends, community and society in general. We want to share this dance potion throughout Australia.
We want to increase the number of practitioners to work effectively with this demographic thus enabling more over 60s to move, feel and live better through dance.
We share the design of dance programs that harness the positive effect of moving to great music with others with a particular focus on falls prevention, brain health/mental agility, emotional wellbeing and social connection, all within a fun, safe, welcoming and supportive environment. We share how to adapt dance to cater for different levels of ability, mobility or dance experience and for a range of settings from community to aged care, respite centres, hospitals and hospices.
We seek to work collaboratively with other practitioners interested in this field.
