WELL-DANCE for Seniors 55+ in Shankill / Mt. Merrion / Ballinteer / Kilbarrack / Dun Laoghaire

Dance is regarded as one of THE most effective activities to prevent and delay age-related illness—recent international research finds it helps promote  balance, flexibility, stronger hearts, brighter brains and happier, healthier, longer lives—not to mention—it’s fun!!! Over the past 5 years Dance Theatre of Ireland have been teaching an evidence-based, modern dance programme called Well-Dance for Seniors – studied and confirmed by Trinity College Dublin Occupational Therapy to improve mobility, balance, confidence and quality of life.

Dance Theatre of Ireland has recently been awarded support from Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Age Friendly Initiative to offer Well-Dance classes for older adults (ages 55+) to residents in Shankill, Ballinteer, Mount Merrion,  Kilbarrack and Dun Laoghaire. Classes starting this month! Open to all. Dance Theatre of Ireland have been recipients of a DLR Age Friendly  Recognition & Achievement Award and a DLR Arts & Culture Community Award as well as being a Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Award finalist.  This programme combines a wonderful modern dance class with GREAT music (Paul Simon, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and more) in a joyful atmosphere.
