Free dancing for the over 50s across Devon
Dance in Devon’s Stepping Out programme provides high quality dance sessions for people over 50 years old of all abilities. The classes are fun, sociable, creative and exercise the body and mind. Each session is 1 hour long with time to socialise with refreshments after. The styles of dance are particular to each professional dance artist, but the group is encouraged to try a range of styles, and are able to request styles from the practitioner. From Samba to ballet, African to ballroom. Groups have been run in Ilfracombe, Sidmouth, Tavistock, Ivbridge, Moretonhampstead, Okehampton and Teignmouth.
Teignmouth and Ilfracombe are offering ongoing sessions. More details can be found here.
