Falling on Your Feet

Helix Arts Falling on Your Feet is a dance programme for anyone over 65, in partnership with dancer/choreographer Nadia Iftkhar.

Helix Arts Falling on your Feet has been awarded 3 years' investment from Dunhill Medical Trust and The Henry Smith Charity.

Do see media reports about our 2016 pilot programme in West Denton Community Centre in the Chronicle and on ITV Tyne Tees. NHS Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group supported our first project which was co-evaluated with Dr Catherine Bailey and Dr Joanna Reynolds from Northumbria University.

Cheryl Gavin produced the Falling on your Feet pilot and is now in pre-production for our 2017 sessions. With dancer and choreographer Nadia Iftkhar she is exploring best ways of developing the programme for the future.

Dance can help:

  • Increase strength and improve balance
  • Improve flexibility
  • Keep your heart healthy
  • Reduce stress
  • Boost memory

And our Falling on your Feet dancers made new friends while having fun and getting fit.
