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 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 regional ‘Helix Arts - Falling On Your Feet’ facebook group can offer an online community for people to keep in touch and share creatively during and after the pandemic. JOIN HERE


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 a chat.

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

We are currently delivering dance cohorts in NORTH TYNESIDE, SUNDERLAND and DURHAM until end of September 2020. We are delighted to be offering a new group in East Durham from October 2020.
