GEMS is a friendly and relaxed dance class for over 65s which includes a mixture of seated and standing movements with a focus on everyone going at their own pace and above all, having fun!
GEMS is more than a dance class. It's about being part of a community, building friendships and everyone enjoying themselves. We cover a wide range of styles and facilitate the exploration of creative movement.
There is the option to stay after the class for tea/coffee.
We often showcase our dancers' skills at performances - and everyone's welcome to take part (if they'd like to)! Take a look at some of our recent and upcoming performances and events.

"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!"
"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."
