GEMS is a friendly and relaxed dance class for over 65s which includes a mixture of seated and standing movement with a focus on going at your own pace and having fun.
GEMS is more than dance class it's about being a part of a community, building friendships and having fun! We cover a wide range of styles and facilitate the exploration of creative movement.
There is the option to stay after the class for a discounted tea/coffee and biscuit in Unit 12 cafe.
"Brilliant class....not only did it feel like a good total body workout and experience the joy of coordinating movement to the rhythms of music. I loved it! I found everyone inspiring role models and every single person made me feel so warmly welcomed. Wonderful! I cannot remember experiencing anything like it before, outside of rare family gatherings!"
10:00am - 11:00am
at Unit 12
£2 per class
"The class has introduced some fun into our lives. I really look forward to it and even if I don’t feel very well, I don’t want to miss it. It is not competitive, you feel accepted and encouraged to be yourself."

Through our GEMS programme, we also offer bespoke sessions for care homes and community groups that can be tailored to suit all abilities.
We can provide a gentle chair-based session or something a bit more energetic. We are also specialists in leading sessions for individuals with dementia using music and movement to provide a joyful experience.
