News: Dance City Taster Day Gets People Aged 55+ Dancing

Dance City Taster Day Gets

People Aged 55+ Dancing

Newcastle Dance City
Sunday 1st October 2017

It’s widely known that dance is one of the best forms of exercise for keeping fit and healthy in body and mind and Dance City, the North East’s leading organisation for dance, is encouraging more people aged 55 and over to get dancing.

Dance City has organised a Taster Day for over 55’s to get moving and try out different styles of dance. The day which is open to all, is taking place on Sunday 1 October 2017, to coincide with UK Older People’s Day which celebrates the achievements and contributions that older people make to society and the economy.

The taster day is taking place at Dance City, Temple Street in Newcastle City Centre. It’s open to all and Dance City actively encourage those completely new to dance, those who may have danced when they were younger who wish to rekindle an old interest, and those who already take part in dance and would like to try out new styles. There will opportunities to try Ballet, Contemporary, Tap, Salsa, Fitsteps, Vinyasa Flow and Pilates and it costs just £5 to take part.

The day which has been running now for three years, will be relaxed, informative and fun and has been described by past participants as ‘an excellent and enjoyable afternoon’ and ‘a warm welcoming, friendly, experience.’

Due to popular demand Dance City has recently expanded its programme of dance classes for people aged 55+ and now runs 10 weekly classes in Tap, Ballet, Pilates, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Fitsteps, Contemporary and Cuban Salsa. These run alongside 34 other 16+ dance classes in a wide range of styles which adults of all ages are welcome to attend and a wide range of classes for children and young people.

Anthony Baker, Joint CEO and Artistic Director of Dance City said: “What we are passionate about at Dance City is getting people moving and dancing regardless of their ability and age. We now have ten classes especially for people aged 55+. We want everyone to feel welcome to come along and dance with us whether you danced previously or not. We believe in the wonderful benefits that dance can bring to your life at any age.”

The Taster day is on at Dance City, on Sunday 1 October. Participants can book for session 1 (12.30-2.30) or session 2 (3-5pm) and it costs just £5.
