MDI’s Dance for Parkinson’s classes in partnership with the English National Ballet start again on October 15th and run for 8 weeks. Classes run between 2 and 3.15 pm and are £3.50 per session. This term the classes will focus on the repertoire from Romeo and Juliet and the term includes a trip to Manchester to see the performance in November. You can come by yourself or bring a friend, family member or carer and there is no need to have had dance experience in the past or know anything about ballet! Classes are great fun, involve seated and standing exercises which you can take at your own pace. Exercises can be adapted to suit your own mobility and there is always an opportunity for a chat and a cuppa after the session.

MDI’s Dance and Movement sessions for people living with Dementia continue to run on the second and fourth Monday of each month. The sessions are free and run in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society and run between 1.30 and 3.30 at the MDI studio, 24 Hope Street. They are a great way of including gentle exercise into your regular routine and they are great fun too. Participants have noticed an increase in confidence and wellbeing in the loved ones they attend with and it’s a great support for carers too who can talk to other carers and representatives from the Alzheimer’s Society. No dance experience is necessary. The sessions are led by Maxine Brown who brings a wealth of experience, a relaxed energy and is able to accommodate interests, music choices and suggested dance styles from participants into the sessions. Come along and try it out, have some fun and get creative on a Monday!
