Dance for Wellbeing

Book your place HERE

Combining her love of music and movement, Louise has developed Dance for Wellbeing, a different kind of dance party which is focused on helping you to let your hair down, have fun and release the tensions of the day.

Many of us are missing being able to have a dance with friends. Now you can do that virtually with a Dance for Wellbeing session.

What’s involved
This workshop starts with gentle stretching movements to release tension. More dynamic stretches follow along with a playlist which is carefully crafted by Louise for a maximum feel-good experience. It ends with a mini-relaxation which leaves you with a feeling of calm and wellbeing.

This Dance for Wellbeing class has developed through 10 years of Louise’s work in wellbeing group facilitation in Special Needs services, the prison service, youth mental health and through her psychology, yoga and mindfulness training.

What’s needed
Water
A chair/cushion if you wish to sit for beginning stretches and end relaxation
Headphones if you would prefer to have a silent dance party!
