Breathing Space | Batley

Dance and Movement with Lottie Hanson & Dr Richard Coaten

Movement and dance promotes physical health and well-being, supports self-esteem and confidence, and is at heart a very sociable activity. In these sessions there is no attempt to remember steps from previous weeks, learn any particular technique, tire anyone out, or put anyone on the spot. Simply spend time together moving, dancing and having fun with each other.

Meet people and have fun in these safe and supportive sessions.  No previous experience or confidence needed, just a willingness to have a go.


Breathing  Space offers people with dementia and their family member, partner, carer or support worker a range of creative activities.  It’s proven that taking part in creative activities has positive benefits to mental and physical health and well being.  Participants can take part in weekly group sessions where they can meet people, make friends and have fun.  Sessions include music and song, movement, dance and visual arts.  It’s a place to revisit forgotten stories, songs, creative skills and movement and explore new and exciting ones.  Absolutely no previous experience is needed.
