Dance for Wellbeing

An initiative of Belco Arts, the Dance for Wellbeing program provides 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 continues to pioneer such programs across 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!

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