DANCING FOR THE OVER 55S
THURSDAY 13 DECEMBER 2018
Northern Ballet's Dancing for the over 55s is becoming increasingly popular as word spreads of the fun and fitness people get from it. Participants not only improve their dance skills but also form friendships and social groups, so much so that it’s difficult to stop them all chatting at the start of each class!
We believe that dance should be accessible to everyone, and this class provides a gentle movement session where people can improve their fitness, flexibility and mobility in a creative way and at a suitable level.
Some of our current class members have taken up ballet again having enjoyed it as a child, while others are trying it for the first time in and this is what makes the class such fun – everyone is keen to have a go and no-one worries if they struggle with a certain move or exercise.
One participant, Madeleine says,
"There is nothing like doing pliés for letting you know which bits of your body aren’t working! The class is an opportunity for people our age to continue to learn, be challenged and enjoy life, and it is encouraging to know that it’s possible to keep fit and active throughout life."
Please note the Over 55's workshop cost will include the Northern ballet Revealed event - participants will join the talk after the class on stage.
Workshop on stage 9.15 - 10.30am, followed by Northern Ballet revealed
Tickets £15.00 (friends of Northern Ballet £12)
