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
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.
“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
WHAT AND WHERE?
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.
We hope our regional ‘Helix Arts - Falling On Your Feet’ facebook group can offer an online community too! This is for all participants and their families across our dance groups to keep in touch and share creatively during and after the pandemic. JOIN HERE
We have recently completed dance cohorts in NORTH TYNESIDE, SUNDERLAND and SOUTH DURHAM which ran from August to September 2020. New programmes will be announced below as they become available but if this is somethig you would like to see in your area then please get in touch.
As lockdown eases, we hope we can meet for dancing and walks in the park, alfresco chats and picnics.
