Senior Movers

Online dance for Senior Movers – pre-recorded videos and live online dance sesions

With care homes and groups for older people on lockdown at the moment, it’s just as important to keep our bodies mobile, healthy and stimulated.

So at Zest we wanted to provide a service of gentle exercise videos especially for Senior Movers, which care homes and groups for older people can access and enjoy.

Our Senior Movers dance sessions:

  • For all levels and abilities
  • Dementia friendly
  • Low impact exercise
  • Seated exercise
  • Standing gentle dance movement
  • Combining different dance styles
  • Creative and cultural
  • No equipment needed
  • Professional and experienced teachers

Full length pre-recorded dance workshops

There is no substitute for having a facilitator there with you, but our pre-recorded lessons are the next best thing!

Until it’s safe to book workshop providers to come into groups and care homes again, Zest has created a gentle dance session which is pre recorded for you to follow along with and enjoy.

The pre-recorded video includes:

  • Introduction to the different dance styles included
  • A warm up
  • A mix of seated and standing movement
  • Different dance styles (Bollywood, 60’s dance and Line dance)
  • Video lasts 30mins in total

You will get a private link to the video, so you can watch it as many times as you like!

Cost: The cost for the pre-recorded video is £35

So if you would like one for your care home or group, please get in touch.
Here’s a snippet of the video…

Online live sessions

Our friendly, engaging and experienced teachers can do a live online class with you.

We send you a link for Zoom/Skype or any other online platform, or we can join yours if that is easier for you. This will be for a time slot that you request.

The participants are encouraged to follow along with the clear movement instructions with the dance teacher online.

Cost: The cost is £25 total for the live Zoom class
