ZEST: Dance for Wellbeing classes are designed for adults who want to experience the joy of dancing and 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!  We dance while sitting on a chair, with options to stand and travel. No previous dance experience is necessary.

Dance is a unique vehicle, naturally combining multiple approaches to movement and exercise, building confidence and an improved quality of life.

The classes are taught by two teaching artists, which means we can offer participants more seated and standing options. The Friday class has the capacity to move at a more energetic pace than Tuesday. Both classes are designed to make dance accessible, no matter your age or ability.

We use Covid safe protocols

We follow all required ACT Government health protocols at the venue. If you would prefer to wear a mask please do. We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable. Of course, please stay home if you feel unwell.

The ZEST program is supported by Belco Arts, The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Parkinsons, Tuggeranong Arts Centre and is a partner of Ausdance ACT.
