Dance and Movement for over 55s - Taster (LBRuT)

This taster course is delivered on behalf of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (LBRuT) and is open to Richmond upon Thames residents only. Residents can enrol on one free LBRuT course per academic year.

This is a taster session for the main course which starts the following week. It is based in Parkshot.

This is a fun, group movement games, music and choreography class for those over the age of 55.
The focus is on building the strength, flexibility and movement range, but, above all, lifting up the spirits and enjoying a weekly session of interaction which keeps you moving and smiling.
The content is the mixture of drama games, stretching, a series of choreography to songs, including different types of dance, cool-down and relaxation.
It's all designed to bring the group together, enjoy expressing yourself through movement and learning new co-ordination. The relaxation in the end is an important part of the process too, as it is designed to clear and focus the mind and set you off on an open and positive journey through the rest of the day.

Entry Requirements

To be eligible for this course you must be resident in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and age 19 or over on the start date of the course. (LBRuT residents are entitled to one free LBRuT course per academic year.)
