Falling on your Feet

Zoom online with Falling on your Feet!

Helix Arts is now building an online dance community for people aged 65+ and our free, online sessions delivered by professional dancers are available now!

Every week participants will join expert choreographers via Zoom, to take part in online dance sessions from the comfort of their own home. All that is needed is access to the internet and a laptop, tablet or mobile phone; with technical support available from Helix Arts if required.

WHAT IS FALLING ON YOUR FEET?

Falling On Your Feet is a dance and health programme, co-curated with people aged 65+ who are living independently. Weekly sessions offer the chance to work with professional artists to create beautiful dance work, develop strength and flexibility, and make new friends. 

Our programme aims to reduce the risk of trips and falls through creative movement, and regular workshops often lead to co-choreographed dance pieces that are shared with wider audiences. Every session offers crucial time to share socially which supports positive mental health and well-being.

If you would like to commission Falling on your Feet in your community please contact Cheryl 07976240570.
