This course is open to all over the age of 60 years of age and anyone younger with a health condition where lower impact movement to music may be more suitable.

The class will start with a warm up, followed by standing low impact dance routines that can be performed seated if necessary. Seated exercises for strength and mobility will form the focus for the second half of the class. A balance exercise routine using a chair as a barre to prevent falling and aid stability will be explored each week. Relaxation, a cool down and stretch to improve range of movement will conclude the class

By the end of the course you will be able to...

  • To perform exercises to music demonstrating improved mobility, co-ordination, rhythm, movement memory and balance
  • To perform a variety of exercises to demonstrate improved strength
  • To perform stretches to demonstrate improved range of movement and flexibility
  • To demonstrate an awareness of alignment and core stability when performing balance exercises
