Keep Dancing in the community

In the community: Care Homes, Hospitals, Retirement Villages, Day Centres and Dementia Cafés

Xpress-Yourself for the past 6 years have worked in residential care homes, retirement villages, day centres, dementia cafes and dementia wards in hospitals. Xpress-Yourself deliver person centred creative dance workshops that encourage movement, self-expression , improving individual’s health and wellbeing.

Past projects have included partnerships with Alzheimer’s Society, Age UK, Hereford County Hospital, Disability Resource Centre and many care homes across the West Midlands.

Our dance workshops are suitable for frail and elderly adults who may also be living with dementia. Our workshops make dance accessible for all and bring smiles to resident’s faces of many as individuals are encouraged to participate authentically.

Our dance workshops can be delivered in a standing or seated capacity and encourage individuals to move and dance, watch dance demonstrations and reminisce about dancing days gone by to a whole array of familiar music. Our variety of props ensure that residents also enjoy a sensory experience.

Our workshops in the community aim to encourage the sharing of dance experiences using creative expressive dance and movement and to celebrate dancing together in the moment. Our workshops are delivered nonverbally which alleviates any anxiety of not hearing or understanding instructions.
