Dance Dementia Class

People living with Dementia, their Carers, friends and family, are invited to attend a free dance session at Pocklington Arts Centre at 10am on Wednesday 26 September. 

The session, run by the dance department from York St John University, aims to provide a sense of wellbeing for people in the early stages of dementia and their companions.

The sessions are held regularly at the University, led by the dance department, but PAC wants to bring them to the Pocklington area so more people affected by the condition can experience the benefits of dance and creative movement. 

Dance and creative movement can: 

Reduce stress 
Encourage social interaction
Maximise cognitive function
Improve balance and overall fitness
Provide an opportunity to dance, play and feel good.

The session is open to all ages and abilities, including those who may wish to remain seated throughout. No dance partner is required. 

Tea and coffee will be served afterwards, providing an opportunity for people to socialise. 

The session is free of charge but booking is essential. To book your place or to find out more call the Box Office on 01759 301547.
