The sun is shining – so kick up your heels!

Dancing 2It’s time to join the Over 50s Forum and enhance your wellbeing with a little dancing. Come and ‘skip the light fandango’ – as the saying goes. Suitable for all shapes, sizes and abilities.

Jackie Terry-Schuhmann is a director of Dancing for Well-Being, a non-profit organisation, with currently 5 groups in Harrogate District. Jackie led one of our Forum meetings about 15 months ago and her routines were very popular. Many people have asked for her return – so here she is. Jackie will use a mixture of music from all over the world and more familiar music that everyone can sing-a-long to while we dance. Some dances include props such as scarves, velvet elastic, hats and cheerleader pompoms which all add greatly to the fun. You can really let your
hair down and be spontaneous; there are no right or wrong moves, only variations!

See our ‘Forum Events’ page for further details.

We certainly got our dancing shoes on!

Pompom3 revOn one of the coldest days of the year, so far, we beat the cold by tripping the light fantastic. What fun we had! Led by Jackie Terry (Dancing for Well-Being), we danced the afternoon away: all types of dancing including the charleston complete with feathers …..!

We also learned about ways to improve health, mobility and balance.
