Movement For Memory

Back to Activities

Free, gentle dance-based sessions for people living with memory loss or cognitive impairment, led by Imagination Dance CIC in Royston and Gamlingay.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • meeting other people facing similar challenges helps you feel less alone;
  • gentle movement, music and dance will help you re-connect with your body;
  • it is a supportive, non-judgemental space – no-one minds if you are tired, forgetful or not feeling your best.

“The classes not only give us much needed exercise, they also give us fun!”

What to expect

Founded by Hannah Reynolds, Imagination Dance CIC provides dance opportunities for those who are rarely offered them. Movement For Memory sessions are gentle, inclusive and supportive ways to move to music for people of all ages and abilities living with memory loss or cognitive impairment. Sessions are led by qualified and trained dance teachers who specialise in movement for older people and people with health issues.

No diagnosis is necessary, but Movement For Memory is ideal if you are living with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, dementia or have had a stroke.  Movements can be adapted for people who are seated as well as those who would like to stand. Wheelchair users are welcome but ideally you should have some level of mobility in your upper body to experience the full benefit of the class.

You don’t need any previous dance experience, just a willingness to get involved – the emphasis is on having fun, not a polished performance!
