About this cause

Greenwich Dance offers creative dance classes for all ages and abilities designed to support physical fitness, wellbeing and social connection. We attracted 2,365 attendances across 300 sessions last year. More than 45% of our participants identify as BAME. Our adult participants are working parents, women living alone or are retired, while our young participants battle complex home lives.

How this cause brings people in the community together

Meeting online has been a lifeline for many and we have attracted more than 549 attendances since lockdown. However, some find technology a barrier so in addition to the classes, we will run a campaign to encourage current participants to support a friend at risk of loneliness to connect with our network of support. Margie, a class participant, said: "Our togetherness has been a lifeline."
