Carers take to the floor at Newington Day Centre

Our work with Newington Day Centre has continued this Autumn with a new project supporting a group of carers and we had some really positive feedback.

By  joining the weekly sessions, these women have been encouraged to get out of the house and socialise at a time when they really needed contact with others.  New friends have been made with other carers and everyone has looked forward to the upbeat sessions with Sheena and dance artist Helen.

A team member at the centre said the feedback had been great: “The ladies expressed how much they enjoyed each class; the physical and mental health benefits they have experienced through dance as well as the social interaction the class has provided for them. They loved how fun the classes were and how they learnt many different dances as well as reminiscing through the different music pieces that were played.”  We hope to be back soon!
