ZEST: Dance for Wellbeing

Dance class participants seated in chairs perform dance moves with raised arms

ZEST: Dance for Wellbeing

Online via Zoom
11am-12pm Tuesdays and Fridays

$5 per class

Register in advance for the next Zoom dance class at the ZEST website.

These classes are designed for adults who want to keep their body and brain active and healthy, regardless of their mobility, skill or age. 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, building confidence and an improved quality of life. Taught by a team of highly experienced and dedicated dance artists, you will experience movement to music, much of it taking place seated in a chair, as you’re guided through a carefully planned program of dance activities.

Due to Covid restrictions the dance classes have moved online. Register in advance for the next Zoom dance class at the ZEST website. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information and a link to join the class. Classes are $5 per participant.
