Description:

Under the umbrella of Kerry County Council, Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership and the Arts Office pooled resources to roll out an exciting 8 week Dance Programme for women who are young at heart (55+). This county wide programme is funded primarily under the Women in Sport programme supported by the HSE. The programme incorporates elements of a variety of different dance styles i.e. contemporary dance, creative movement, swing dance and salsa among others, with a strong emphasis on physical movement and creativity. Over the course of the programme, participants are encouraged to develop their creativity through movement and dance and together the groups have the choice to create their own dances with a possible showcasing of the work at the end of the programme. Programme Aims 

  • To provide an opportunity for women who are young at heart (55+) to engage in physical activity through dance

 

  • To provide exposure to different types of dance to women who are young at heart (55+)

 

  • To encourage sustainable participation in physical activity among women over 55
