Everyday Waltzes for Active Ageing is a wellness programme that turns mundane daily movements and gestures into creative dances to reinforce and expand senior participants' cognitive and physical abilities.
The orientation workshop is designed as a taster session that allows the participants to gain a quick feel of what a creative movement class entails. The session includes facilitators led movement warmup to build core muscles for balance, fluid arm and leg movements for ease of coordination, and deep breathing exercises to relax muscles and deepen stretches. The orientation workshop is open to all with no prior background or experience required.
