Will you dance the day away with us?
Para Dance UK are thrilled to be the first inclusive dance charity involved in the Great British Week of Sport working in partnership with UK Active to bring you a fun filled Inclusive Remote Day of Dance on Friday 25th September 2020.
We are committed to breaking down the barriers that prevent people from dancing and our aim is to engage a wide range of people to come together, be active and have fun through the power of dance virtually. Whatever your age, whatever your situation, dance can offer you a number of benefits which include;
- Greater confidence and self-esteem
- Improved general and psychological well being
- Increased aerobic fitness as well as muscular strength and endurance
- Better coordination, agility, balance and flexibility
- Reduction in stress and anxiety levels
We are excited to share the positive impact that keeping active through dance can have, providing everybody with the opportunity to get involved, ensuring that no individual is excluded.
Our Inclusive Remote Dance Day has something for everyone to celebrate that Everyone Can Dance and will include:
Live Dance Workshops
Turn the volume up loud and dance the day away with us! Our savvy Para Dance UK instructors will be going live to teach you a number of upbeat dance moves in street dance, contemporary and musical theatre to get you moving. Whether you want to hone-in on your technique, give your back muscles a good stretch, or simply have a fun workout while at home, we’ve got you covered. You pick the place we pick the dance moves!
