Dancing with Dementia updates

We’re continuing with our pilot project this Spring – Dancing with Dementia – in collaboration with the charity Jewish Care at a care home in Brighton, encouraging older residents with dementia to stay active, using music to trigger memories.

So far this year, we’ve welcomed music therapist Dominque Levack, Belly dancer Bettina, as well as Sari dancing, Flamenco with Helena, Yoga sessions, and musical performance from students of Access to Music college in Summer 2017.

Thanks to the Healthy Collaboration fund through Trust for Developing Communities for this support.

Strike a Light-Arts & Heritage has been awarded a grant by the Trust for Developing Communities – Healthy Community Fund for a Brighton project called Dancing with Dementia.

We’ll be working with dementia sufferers in a care home in the city as a pilot project from December 2016 to Spring 2017 with a variety of music and performance and freelance practitioners.
