Dance to Health

South East Dance in partnership with Aesop (Arts Enterprise with a Social Purpose) and NHS Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group have begun the national roll-out of the newly expanded Dance to Health scheme.  Dance sessions began in December in town centres across Oxfordshire involving professional dance artists from across the region, co-ordinated by South East Dance

Dance to Health is a pioneering older people’s falls prevention dance programme developed by Aesop, an arts charity and social enterprise. It combines evidence-based physiotherapy with the creativity and energy of dance. Thanks to a £2.3 million expansion, the programme will run for two years, involving over 800 older people and 800 volunteers. 63 programmes will be delivered across England and Wales in collaboration with regional Health and Dance Partners. 

The expansion programme is being delivered thanks to generous support from the Big Lottery Fund, Nesta and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Peter Sowerby Foundation, Rank Foundation, and the Aged Veterans Fund funded by HM Treasury.  South East Dance will also be responsible for delivery throughout Kent to Warwickshire over coming months.  To find out more, follow this link: http://www.dancetohealth.org/
