New dance classes for people living with Multiple Sclerosis.

We are delighted to announce the expansion of our dance health programme with a new class - Elevate©.

This pilot programme aims to improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing of people living with Multiple Sclerosis. 

Could this help you, or someone you know?

Come and enjoy dance. These fun classes are a chance for you to explore your creativity, expression, musicality, fluidity, balance and posture. Our highly experienced dance health team will support you, and you are welcome to bring a friend, partner or carer to join in too. Participants can take part seated or standing.


On #WorldBalletDay, we were delighted to announce our plans to extend this life-changing programme for another 14 week block.

With your help, we can continue to offer these classes in 2020 and beyond. Donate now to support our groundbreaking Dance Health programme.
