We helped Dance in Devon with a grant towards their Best Foot Forward programme providing fun, sociable dance sessions for older people in Torbay. Confidence-boosting and decreased insolation are two of the most important outcomes of their dance sessions.
The participants tell us that the sessions mean a lot to them:
“I get so much enjoyment from dance, that uplifting feeling that dance produces. When you dance, the music takes you to another place and time and frees you of your day to day worries for a while, quite apart from the physical benefits.”
“The companionship and fun that we have had in these classes has really brought me back to life.”
