Adult Dance Classes

When you see yourself improving month after month, the confidence it gives you in other areas of your life is dramatic. Learning to dance you’ll not only have fun expressing yourself through movement but you’ll rise to the physical and mental challenges and see how much you’re capable of.

If you’re looking to improve your balance or co-ordination, your self-confidence or memory, learning to dance can help you do all of these things. And the best part… you get to have fun with lots of other likeminded people all having a go too!

Counterpoint Dance Company

For the past 8 years Simona’s company Counterpoint Dance has been a medium for exploring many of her creative ideas, from specific projects like Migrations (funded by grants from Arts Council England) to her bigger mission of challenging the sedate and diminishing image of elders that our society holds.

Simona has created a company that utilises and continually improves the capacity of her dancers (who are all over 55yrs), ultimately presenting a vibrant image of the older person that challenges audiences across the globe.
