Breathing Space | Batley

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.

For more information & how to take part see the flyer below or contact Dave or Moira at Hoot 01484 516224/ 07880 731767

Dance & Movement with Dr Richard Coaten | January 6 - February 10

Movement, dance, and physical exercise are great for improving mood and self-confidence.

These sessions will be a mix of movement, dance, music, and socialising. There is no need to remember steps from week to week, or to learn particular techniques. Simply spend time together moving, dancing and having fun.

These workshops are warm and welcoming, and nobody is put on the spot. Absolutely no previous experience is needed, and you do not need to be a confident dancer to join in.

Not sure if it’s for you? Why not give it a try and see how it feels?
