My Dance On Story

Find out more about Dance On sessions for over 50s in Doncaster

A group of women dancing. Some are seated and some are standing. All have their arms in the air. A Dance On project run by darts in Doncaster.

Angela was feeling quite lonely before she joined our Dance On sessions for over 50s. She was unsure about coming along to her first session – but a friend encouraged her to give it a go, and she was surprised to find how enjoyable it was:

“I really enjoy the social side of Dance On. Meeting friends and making new ones is all part of the fun. The group are so friendly. We go for tea and coffee after the session and enjoy having a chat. I feel much less isolated thanks to joining Dance On”.

As well as the social benefits of Dance On, Angela has also noticed some improvements to her health since coming along to the sessions:

“Dance On makes me feel really good, more alert and happy in myself. My back is a lot better since I started coming to Dance On, and my posture has definitely improved. I also suffer with a knee problem, but the sessions really help relieve the ache. Before joining Dance On, I hadn’t considered going to a dance session to improve my health. I feel so elated after the sessions, and they give me a fresh start to the day.”

A Dance On session is the perfect way to have fun, meet new people and move more. Not sure if Dance On is for you? Your first time is always free, so you’ve got nothing to lose!  

There are many welcoming Dance On groups across the city of Doncaster, including weekly sessions at The Point, and in community venues in Edlington, Stainforth, Auckley and Bessacarr. Find a Dance On group near you.
