NEW FOR SEPTEMBER – A FREE DANCE BASED EXERCISE CLASS FOR OLDER PEOPLE
Do you enjoy dancing? do you like exercising to music, would you like to meet and get to know new people in your local area?
What is this?
This dance based class is primarily aimed at those people who are over fifty who prefer to stay fit by dancing or who would like to add a dance class to their fitness regime; those who have difficulty moving – having arthritis for example and those who would like to work with a group to do their exercise. There are clear benefits from choosing dance as an exercise form, proven by science. Dance not only challenges and develops the body physically but also develops the brain as well – new pathways are made in the brain when we learn something new. Double the benefit – keep your brain active as well as your body!
The class is designed to:

Safely raise your heart and breathing rate to improve circulation
