Dance for Wellbeing

An initiative of Belco Arts, the Dance for Wellbeing program is enabling us to provide regular dance classes for ACT communities with Parkinson’s, Dementia and other conditions. With a strong underpinning philosophy of accessibility and arts for all, Belco Arts is pioneering such programs in the ACT.

There is a growing body of medical evidence strongly validating the importance of exercise in the maintenance of our wellbeing – physically, cognitively and socially. Dance ticks all those boxes in one fun package; 

Family, carers and friends are welcome to participate in the weekly classes, led by a team of inspiring and experienced independent dance tutors.
