Music makes us move

The Brain Charity in Liverpool, together with a specialist team of physiotherapists and dancers, have developed a set of integrated exercises which are beneficial for mobility and which aim to retain independence for as long as possible.
What to expect:
You will be warmly welcomed into a group of people who are experiencing dementia and memory problems.
We’ll be dancing together for about one hour.
All bodies are welcome! Dancing is as gentle or as enthusiastic as the participants like.
No prior experience necessary.
Dance workshops are co-run by professional dance instructors and a qualified physiotherapist.
Refreshments will be provided at the end of the session.
Carers are welcome and encouraged to join in.

If you know someone who you think would benefit from our dance workshops for people with dementia in Liverpool, please simply get in touch and we will try to place you on the next available workshop session.
