Dance On With Yorkshire Dance and SS Dance & Wellbeing!!

Having over 15 years knowledge of dance teaching and a qualification in Otago Strength and Balance for Falls Prevention with frailer older adults, our Chief Wellbeing Officer Sophie is able to adapt this dance sessions to suit all ages and abillities to ensure that every participant has a safe, enjoyable and fun experience at their own pace.

The Dance On programme was created to tackle inactivity among older adults, delivered by a partnership of One Dance UK, Yorkshire Dance and darts (Doncaster Community Arts).

It is an exciting project for over 55s, bringing citywide dance to Yorkshire. In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic classes have been moved online. SS Dance & Wellbeing is continuing to work as a freelance partner delivering this programme on a weekly basis - Here is how you can take part in sessions: 

1. Follow this link to our pre-recorded disco dance sessions on YouTube, which are available in a Standing version https://youtu.be/HSRuxWaALd4 and Seated version  https://youtu.be/aqhCdn-Kkzw  

2. Register your details via our 'Get In Touch' bar and book a space.

Every Tuesday you can join our online session to shake your hips Bollywood style, Jazz dance like Gene Kelly, D.I.S.C.O to 70s classics and get your body moving to a mixture of music from 1950s upto now!! This session is accessible for anyone with mobility problems as it can be done standing or seated.

Dance Development

As a dance artist with a specialism in working with older people we are working with Yorkshire Dance to build links in communites and engage Health and Social care partners by reaching out to older people who may be socially isolated or inactive especially during the pandemic.
