Dance 60+

Course Dates: 30/04/19 - 02/07/19
Time: 10:00 - 11:15
Location: KS - Keeley Street
Tutor: Francis Angol

Join our weekly dance and movement classes to improve mobility, posture, balance and coordination. Our aim is to inspire older men and women to get creative with dance and movement.


What is the course about?

An exciting new dance class for people over 60. Working within a fun and light-hearted atmosphere we aim to improve stamina, coordination, balance, confidence and musicality. The class will consist of a mixture of exercises and dance sequences set to great music. You will work by yourself and with others on elements of Contemporary dance, Pilates, Yoga, Ballet, Jazz and other fusion styles.

What will we cover?

We will cover warm-up including mobilizing, strengthening, stretching and balancing exercises, then move into dance sequences that will engage rhythm, coordination and travel in space. Some sessions will involve creative explorations.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Recognise a wider range of movement
Use greater flexibility, co-ordination and balance
Demonstrate increased stamina and control of movement
Perform a set dance sequence with more ease and confidence.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

The course is for any level of experience: beginners in dance, and people with experience in moving or dancing.

In order to get the most from the course you will be able to:
• Follow spoken instructions
• Use numbers to recognise rhythms within dance.
• Work within groups and pairs safely.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Group work in a well equipped, modern sprung floor studio with music. It is essential to be ready to start on time.

As part of the course content, your tutor may record your image for initial and ongoing assessment purposes. You are entitled to decline to participate in the recording of your image.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Bare feet or anti-grip socks should be used except in exceptional cases to be discussed with the teacher. It is
recommended to tie hair back if it is long for safety and comfort and to wear short or long-sleeved tops for the floor work.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

General information and advice on courses at Build is available from the Student Centre and Library on Monday to Friday from 12:00 – 19:00.
