& enlivening people through dance & movement

Get in Touch

Hello & Welcome!

Dancemind is a small non-profit organisation that aspires to nurture and support people through community-based arts, using dance and movement as its primary medium.

The work encompasses an exciting programme of classes, and workshops, enthusing health and well-being for a diverse range of people at all stages in life.

Dancemind specialises in dance and movement for adults with psychological and physical health needs, especially within our older communities. We offer opportunities to nurture our minds & bodies as we continue to explore & evolve.

We support those in schools, hospitals, hospices, retirement villages, residential/care homes and community settings, offering a holistic approach using dance and movement to support emotional, physical and mental well-being by offering non-clinical therapeutic outcomes.

Please visit our classes page to see if there is a class right for you.

Psst: Please note, many of the sessions delivered are closed to the general public as they are designed to meet a specific need of a client group. So do get in touch to find out more as not all classes are advertised.
