This 7-week dance project will be starting Monday 5th February 2024 and will run weekly on the following dates:

  • 5th, 12th & 19th February (No session on 26th February)
  • 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th March

The project to address health inequalities within the Dewsbury community is an initiative determined by several factors, for example:

  • Income
  • Education
  • Access to physical activity 
  • Access to green space 
  • Access to healthy food
  • Types of jobs people have
  • Types of homes people are living in

According to statistics, "levels of physical activity were among the lowest in Kirklees, 3 in 5 (62%) young people doing 60 minutes per day of intensive physical activity. Only 1 in 3 (35%) adults did the recommended physical activity per week." And with the recent closure of Dewsbury Sports Centre, which was a vital community asset in providing health and well-being we are now set for these statistics to potentially rise.

Through SS Dance & Wellbeing I wanted to start something to help with inactivity as every little helps.

If you are interested in dancing?

Want to try an alternative way to move more to improve your physical health?

Looking for some positive motivation and alternative ways to boost your well-being?

This SSDW Community Dance4Health session is for you… It is a dance class with a difference and the best thing about it is that you don't need to be a professional dancer to train like one because in these classes nobody cares if you have two left feet - I promise you…!! As we get older we seem to think that we’re unable to do certain things and we have heightened feelings of self consciousness… Why is that? It baffles me but you are not alone, i sometimes feel it too… This is why in SS Dance & Wellbeing classes you are made to feel comfortable to embrace and let go of inhibitions. Dance is about freedom of expression and all of our bodies will showcase this in a different way. 

No judgement. We dance. We move. We have a laugh. We have fun.

Dance4Health is for you if you are struggling to get back into exercise, feel like you have lost the motivation for physical activity or even a little bit worried about having no coordination and or low confidence. Please do not worry, you’re in safe hands.

Sophie has a warm and welcoming face and personality that will ease you in. The level of the class is accessible for all abilities (and can be done seated) - you have the freedom to work at your own pace and to your own capabilities. Come and "dance till you feel better" through a fusion of Urban Dance, Aerobics, 50s, 60s, 70s and International Dance - Feel the benefits of getting your body moving by improving your health and wellbeing.

Please ensure that you are wearing suitable workout clothing and footwear.

Only 15 places are available for this course, if you attend all of the sessions you will receive a FREE copy of my brand new Self-Discovery Workbook. If you are open to journalling, finding out about yourself and discovering what it is that you want you will definitely benefit from the exercises in my book. The purpose of the workbook is to guide you towards better awareness of your wellbeing and to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Your investment to this personal transformation process is the key to unlocking a path of self-discovery and positive change.

Book a space on to this course via the ‘BUY TICKETS’ link below - All the sessions that you book to attend will be FREE!! The dance session lasts 45 minutes, after the class if you would like to stay around there will be water, tea and coffee available. This session is also about building social connections within the community so if you would like to stay around for a natter in a safe space that is welcomed.
