More Dancing with Dementia



We’ll be running our next Dancing with Dementia session tomorrow at Hyman Fine House care home in Kemptown in Brighton.
We’ve had belly dancing, and have also got Flamenco dance sessions planned, Kathak dance coming up as well as old time music from the 1930s too – between now and April.
This great video shows how to engage older people with advancing dementia, so that they can still exercise and enjoy music and movement.

Dancing with Dementia project

Pleased to say that Strike a Light has been awarded a grant by the Trust for Developing Communities – Healthy Community Fund for a project called Dancing with Dementia.
 
The activities from this will take place with residents at Hyman Fine House in Kemptown, Brighton, which is a Jewish Care Home.
Looking forward to starting sessions there soon!
