About this cause
We aim to improve the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of older people with health and mobility problems in the Harrogate district. We run 7 accessible weekly dance groups which help members experience the joy of dancing, increase physical activity levels, enjoy a sense of belonging, connection and togetherness, and reduce social isolation and loneliness.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our groups give older people who find mainstream exercise and dance activities too strenuous, or challenging in other ways, an opportunity to maintain or improve their mobility, circulation, co-ordination and balance. They can have mental and emotional stimulation, make or renew friendships, feel valued and part of the community, and become more socially active.
