Come along and join the friendly creative dance group for the over 50s at Watford Museum. New Connections is led by Laura Horn, Dance Development Artist for DanceDigital. Sessions run every Wednesday, from 10.30 - 11.30am and cost £3 per class.
This class explores gentle and fluid movement sequences that gradually increase joint mobility and muscular strength. Each exercise can be easily adapted to suit each individual's physical ability. All movements can be performed standing, seated or supported.
The creative elements give participants the opportunity to work together and develop their own movements in response to tasks and group ideas. This provides a stimulating workout for the brain, which enhances everyday brain functions such as memory.
More importantly! Tea and Coffee is provided after the session, giving time to unwind and socialise.
