Get in Touch

Dancemind is a dance and health organisation promoting health and wellbeing through dance, movement and collaborative arts.

We aspire to nurture and support people through community based-arts using dance and movement as its main medium.

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

Dancemind supports 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.

Dancemind specialises in Dance and Movement for older people, we believe that every movement matters, celebrating age and creating new opportunities whilst tackling challenges that older people may experience.
