Dancemind News

Funding awarded to run dance and dementia project 2015
We are delighted to announce that Dancemind have been awarded funding from the Northamptonshire Community Foundation (NCF) to run a year-long dance and movement project with the local Alzheimer's Society Day Centre Services for 2015/16.

After the successful dance project that ran with the local Alzheimer's Society in 2014, it was identified in the evaluation (which you can read here) the need for this work to continue as it was so valuable to the services users, volunteers and staff involved. It's through projects such as these that raise the awareness of how important the role of dance, movement and music play in helping increase the overall sense of well-being of those affected by dementia. The benefits are endless and have been written about numerous times, and you can read my contributions here and here if you would like to understand more.

Needless to say we are very happy with this funding news. Do check back to keep updated on how the project is developing...

Until then keep moving :) 

Warm Wishes
