Dancing Memories

Are you looking for a low impact exercise to encourage residents to be more active; evoking happy memories whilst enabling them to participate in a group movement session?

Dancing Memories is a social seated dance exercise session for people over 55 years who may have restricted mobility, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or anyone who would find other forms of exercise such as Pilates, Yoga, Zumba a challenge. Dancing Memories is ideal for people who enjoy music and want to exercise whilst seated, unless a dancer decides to stand for part of it.

We use props like scarfs, ribbons and shakers. The music is tailored to the group and exercises are adapted accordingly to the needs of the dancers. The focus of the session is to enjoy the music, have fun and be active.

Our session can be for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on your participants’ requirements. The session would need to take place in a communal area in a retirement village/complex, care home and day centre. The sessions are fun, friendly, engaging and very rewarding. We offer a range of options including regular weekly or fortnightly sessions, block booking of 6 or 8 weekly sessions. Sessions start from £22 an hour, all you will need to provide is the space and a chair for each dancer. Our teacher is fully qualified, insured and has an enhanced DBS.

To book a 30 minute taster session for only £10, please email community@jukeboxjunction.co.uk.
