Dance to Health is a pioneering falls-prevention dance programme for older people. In Sheffield we run weekly sessions at St Augustine’s Church, Stocksbridge Community Leisure Centre and Firvale Community Hub. 97% of Dance to Health participants would recommend the programme to people who have fallen or at risk of falling. Our groups are social too, with time at the end of each session for refreshments and a catch up plus groups organise outings and get togethers. We are also looking for volunteers to help run classes and manage groups. To find out more visit www.dancetohealth.org or email jennyjohnson@ae-sop.org to find out how to join a class.
