Keep Dancing Christmas Parties

‘Tis the season’ to spend time dancing and so this year

Xpress-Yourself hosted two Keep Dancing Christmas Parties

one in Solihull and one in Wednesbury.

,‘It was lovely party and so kind of you all to wait on us. Thanks so much to you all and a Happy Christmas.’

,Sue Darlaston

It was an opportunity to get all glammed up and enjoy an afternoon of dancing, delicious Christmas cake and Yule log and a chance for dancers to meet others dancers from across the region. Over seventy dancers attended the parties which was a great turn out, thank you all who supported us!

,‘It was a brilliant afternoon had a lovely time dancing!’

,Tina, South Yardley ’

The parties provided a chance to dance and revisit some of

the classic Keep Dancing routines. Including Zorba the Greek

and Jailhouse Rock both chosen on the merit of working out

our laughing muscles.

As a treat for all the Keep Dancing dancers, the Xpress-Yourself team, Faye O’Connor, Faye Hadley Fiona Petts, Helen Mason Reanne Toone and Georgie Millward Taylor performed to Singing in the Rain and All I want for Christmas that the worked together to choreograph.

,Happy Christmas to everyone at Xpress-Yourself. An enjoyable afternoon. Nice Cake!

,Jeanette, Marston Green


,The afternoon ended with a group dance, a group Catch a Falling Star and a sing song to Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas. A perfect ending for a lovely afternoon!

,‘Had a lovely afternoon. Thank you all. Merry Christmas’

Our Keep Dancing classes are designed so that they are low impact with no need for a partner. Keep Dancing welcomes people living with arthritis as we happily make adaptations to movements to prevent aggravation of different joints, we know that each person has a different body and ability and we believe that everyone is a dance.

Keep Dancing teaches many different dance styles to maintain interest, improve coordination and improve balance and develop memory. The nature of the classes are very friendly and encourage people to meet new people and have FUN!

However, we’re not just about Keep Dancing. Our belief that everyone is dancer is extended to working with older frail adults in care homes, dementia cafes and hospitals. Our dance workshops are use an inclusive approach so that they are accessible for all no matter how limited an individual’s movement may be. We whole heartened believe that any opportunity to dance is an opportunity to gently move, evoke memories and bring laughter and happiness into everyone’s lives.
