Dance for Health

“MDI champions, initiates, supports and engages with breadth and diversity in dance. MDI championed me. Without MDI my life in dance would have been poorer in health. I champion MDI.” Liz Aggiss, Dance Artist.

It’s been proven that dance can boost wellbeing, not only through the benefits of exercise but by giving people a chance to learn something new, make new friends and feel included in a group. We work with health sector partners such as The Brain Charity, as well as other arts organisations to carry out our work in the community – and the experiences we help create are truly remarkable.

For older people, we offer weekly classes: 50 Moves and Men Dancing. Our Dance and Health projects include Dance for Parkinson’s in collaboration with English National Ballet and Physiotherapy Through Dance with The Brain Charity.
