What will happen if I take part?

You will be asked to complete a short survey to request to join the classes

If eligible, you will be invited to participate in 8 weeks of free online dance classes led by Dance Base

You will be invited to complete surveys and attend a focus group to share your views on what the classes are like for you, including the opportunity to engage creatively, such as through drawing

The information you give us will be kept confidential

 

What will the classes be like?

The dance classes will be led by Dance Base, Scotland's National Centre for Dance

Taking inspiration from contemporary dance techniques and using an eclectic playlist of upbeat and relaxing tunes, the classes will focus on fun, rhythmic exercises that get the body moving

The 1.5 hour session will start with a warm-up, followed by learning some fun choreography. There will also be time during some of the class to get to know the teacher and the other dancers in the group
