Training to teach adapted dance for the elderly (60-90+)


A practical workshop for teaching artists and teachers looking at developing appropriate dance content and progression of learning to support senior learners and their physical and mental wellbeing (age 65-90+ years)

  • Develop the attention and focus capacity of seniors through optimal cueing language that facilitates movement skills learning for all publics.

  • Structure progression of learning and dance content to promote brain health and increase cognitive reserve at any age – warding off dementia

  • Introducing and progressing creative improvisation to challenge reaction time, executive choice function and periphery vision – components of falling

  • Building courage and risk taking through dance
