Dance For Lifelong Wellbeing

Class Description

Have fun, make friends, and move to some of your favorite music. Developed from a research project she conducted with the Royal Academy of Dance and older adults across London, Dr Victoria Watts teaches a dance class designed to promote cognitive, physical, and social wellbeing.

From the razzle-dazzle of Broadway, through the refinement of ballet, to the ‘let it rip’ energy of jazz, disco, and soul, we will draw from different dance traditions and musical styles, all the while working on balance, strength, cardio-vascular health, joint mobility, memory, and coordination.  We might throw in some dance history and some science along the way! No previous dance experience required, class activities are accessible to all regardless of current level of mobility.


COVID-19 Policy – At this time Cornish  College of the Arts Vaccination Policy states that all students must: (a) establish that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine; (b) obtain an approved exemption. Students will be asked to show proof of vaccination before entering any Cornish buildings.

Back to class safely – While this course is in person, we would like to offer this as a synchronous online option. Please email for any questions.
