We've been teaching dance and exercise in the Bedford area since 2002 and we believe in creating classes for all ages and abilities
We offer a friendly atmosphere, a small, social community and classes taught by someone who is qualified to teach exercise for seniors
Dance4all's Movement to Music classes for seniors are held in Bedford. Classes in the past have been on behalf of various government and community groups, including the Bedford Primary Care Trust, Bedfordshire Pilgrims Housing Association, the Alzheimer's Society and The Bedford Caribbean Senior Citizens Association. Some of our classes have been running since 2002, with original participants still attending - however new members are always warmly welcomed!
Maintaining physical fitness throughout life is important, however this is especially true for older members of the community. Age UK director general Michelle Mitchell has said: “The impact of a fall can be devastating and the scale of the issue is a real concern, especially as we know that prevention is so much better than cure.We’re encouraging people to find out how to introduce simple strength and balance exercises into day-to-day life to help prevent falls".
As part of her Exercise to Music Instructor qualification, Angharad has had special training in teaching seniors - so you know you're in safe hands! Classes can be customised to suit the abilities of all participants, from gentle chair-based exercise through to aerobics.
We currently run a class for those aged 60+. The content of the class is based on the wants and needs of the class and sometimes makes use of aerobic equipment. After the class there is tea and coffee to relax and catch up.
The classes we currently run
For all classes, fees are payable in 10-week blocks prior at the start of each block (we split the year into 4). For the actual price per class please email as these vary between class to class and venue. Please note, we do not accept pay-as-you-go arrangements and absences must still be paid for.
Fees and Costs
Discounts are available if a student attends more than one class a week or has a family member attending a Dance4all class (excludes Private classes). For more details please email.
