Breathing Space | Batley

Making Sound Connections - Music with Dominic Moore

The focus in this series of sessions will be on having fun, and making rhythms and instant songs out of conversations that arise. Together we’ll watch, listen, smile and develop on the spot music which will evolve from our enthusiasm.
Absolutely no previous experience or confidence is needed; come and give it a try.


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.
