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 with dancers begin in August 2020.

We know how important it is for people to feel connected right now, especially when many of us are having to self-isolate or shield at home because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of us are…

That is why we would love anyone 65+ to join our new weekly online dance sessions. This will continue our goal to help you reduce slips, trips and falls and encourage creativity and wellbeing - now from home.

“The dance artists bring the best out of us in a gentle, encouraging way and the improvement in my posture, confidence and general wellbeing since starting these classes had been of great benefit to me.” Female participant, Durham

We want to grow a safe places where people can:

“As a recently retired man ‘Falling On Your Feet’ has introduced me to fresh ideas and a new group of friends.”
Male participant, North Tyneside

We hope our new online Falling on you Feet dance group - comprising of people from across the North East - will feel like a ‘home from home’ community for people to connect during and after the pandemic. JOIN HERE

Every week people will have the chance to get fit and active with our free, online sessions with dancers.


Falling on your Feet groups will dance together on Zoom (we can help get you set up and show you how). Just like our ‘in-person’ Falling on you Feet classes, artists and volunteers will stay online afterwards for a chance to enjoy a cuppa and chat.

Catch up with friends and meet new people from your local community or further afield. We want our new group to be a place where people can support each other during this difficult time and form new, long lasting friendships.

Artists from groups that used to take place in Middlesbrough, North Tyneside, Durham and Sunderland will start off our dance sessions. First come first served. Existing members and new members welcome.

NEW East Durham Thursdays, 10.00am Welcome session 8th October Start date: 15th October

North Tyneside Mondays, 10.30am Start date: 17th August

Durham Tuesdays, 10am Start date: 18th August

Sunderland Tuesdays 1.30pm Start date: 18th August

Join our regional ‘Helix Arts - Falling On Your Feet’ facebook group where all groups can meet each other, relax at home, chat and share creatively.

As lockdown eases, we hope we can meet for walks in the park, alfresco chats and picnics.

Sessions run throughout the week from Mid August 2020. Please contact Sam Burgess at Helix Arts on:
