Great fun at the Go For Life Dance Workshop

Twenty-eight older adults  “whirled and twirled” the day away in Rainbow Hall, Kilmacthomas on Wednesday 16th October at the Go for Life Dance Workshop run by Waterford Sports Partnership.
The workshop aimed to encourage older adults to incorporate dance into their weekly meetings as a fun and social form of activity. The Go For Life tutors led the group in a seated warm-up and then taught them the steps to a number of songs throughout the day, progressively adding in steps and music when participants were confident. 

At the end of the session the participants each received a workbook detailing the dances they had learned and a CD of music so that they could work towards teaching their group members the activities over a number of weeks.

Feedback from the day was very positive with comments including “Wonderful, enjoyable and great fun” and “invigorating way for older adults to get the body moving”.

Well done to all that took part, we hope you continue to be physical activity leaders by sharing what you learned and spreading dance fever to your groups, friends and family!
