With our specialist knowledge of the condition, our experienced teachers know how to get the best out of you and recognise that no two days are the same. You will be welcomed by our friendly dance teachers and in every class we will motivate you to get the most out of the sessions to feel more mobile and positive. Each group is supportive and welcomes new members. Give it a go or telephone to discuss whether it could be something for you.
