Now titled ZEST: Dance for Wellbeing, the beloved dance program will be managed and led by a team of teaching artists; Jacqui Simmonds, Jane Ingall, Debora Di Centa, Amy Macris and guest teachers.

Designed for adults who want to keep their body and brain active and healthy, regardless of their mobility, skill or age. Please come and feed your body and spirit with music and movement, be physically and mentally inspired and stimulated, have fun, meet some new friends and feel good! Dance is a unique vehicle, naturally combining multiple approaches to movement and exercise, confidence building and an improved quality of life. You will experience gentle exercise to music, much of it taking place sitting in a circle of chairs, as you’re guided through a carefully planned program of dance activities.

Suitable for people who experience chronic pain, arthritis, repetitive strain injury, chronic fatigue, multiple sclerosis and other conditions.

Classes will continue at the same time and places as previously – Dance for People with Parkinson’s at Belco Arts on Tuesdays 1:15-2:30pm and Dance for Everyone at Belco Arts on Fridays 12-1pm. Dance for People with Parkinson’s classes will also continue at Tuggeranong Arts Centre on Wednesdays 11:15am-12:30pm.

Classes will run for 10 weeks per term, recommencing on 13 July till 17 September – and the theme is Sugar and Spice. Guaranteed to be tasty!

Class fees are now $12 per class, or $100 for the 10 week term, payable by cash at class, or by EFT internet banking (details at class).
