Dance to Health is a nationwide pioneering community dance programme for older people. It combines evidence-based falls prevention principles with the creativity, expression and energy of dance. The sessions are led by professional dance artists from leading dance companies who have been fully trained and qualified in falls prevention exercise methods.

Currently we are running sessions in Birmingham, Cheshire, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, South Wales and Yorkshire. The programme is currently recruiting volunteers to help run sessions in these areas and the programme is ready to be commissioned in other areas.

Dance to Health was devised and is managed by Aesop, a social enterprise and charity.


Provides weekly falls prevention dance classes to older people in six regions in England and Wales. Our groups are supported by Aesop and volunteers to become self-funded to ensure they can continue providing this valuable service to their community into the future.
