This isn't your average dance class, we dance, we laugh, we have fun!! Within all SS Dance & Wellbeing classes I like to provide a safe, comfortable enviroment where participants feel the freedom to express themselves. 

Dance practitioner Sophie, who leads this class has been trained in OTAGO, which is a series of exercises that improve strength and balance in older adults. These exercises are incororated into the dance routines to enable prolonged lives of older adults and to help them to maintain a good quality of life. Join this dance class every Thursday afternoon - shake your hips Zumba style, Jazz dance like Gene Kelly, D.I.S.C.O to 70's classics and get your body moving and grooving to a mixture of music from 1950s upto now!!
