Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

About Men! Dancing! Men! Dancing! is a weekly dancing project for men aged 50+. You may have danced professionally in the past, or prefer to take to the floor at a family party but if you are interested in
dance in any form, this class is for you. Classes introduce movement technique and body awareness with a creative element.

About 50 Moves With a focus on contemporary dance, these classes are for people aged 50 and over who are interested in dance, keeping fit and socialising with a great group of people. The class uses taught
exercises to encourage increased mobility, balance and fitness, as well as promoting memory within movement, by building on sequences to create dance works for performance (for those who wish to perform at one of our regular events).

About Dance for Parkinson’s
Dance for Parkinson’s is a welcoming class that introduces gentle and joyful movement to live music, through the repertory performance work of English National Ballet.

It provides a fun and informal way for participants to discover the themes, choreography and music of performance, with opportunities to attend exclusive behind-the-scenes events and see the Company perform.

The classes encompass movement, music and voice work, with a social focus aiming to support the management of living with Parkinson’s.  Dance can improve the fluidity of movement, improve posture and inspire creativity in and awareness of movement.  Rhythm
can encourage cueing actions and singing aims to build strength in the voice and facial expression.

No dance or ballet experience required. Friends and/or family are welcome to join. Classes are delivered by Jennie Hale and Stephen Mannings.
