Déda is working on projects across the city and the county aimed at improving peoples’ quality of life through dance and the arts.
Our current projects include:
- Dance Active – using evidence-based strength and balance structured exercises we are improving falls prevention and postural stability in older people through dance and physical activity.
- Dance for Dementia – Déda is using dance to improve quality of life for people living with dementia. As well as benefits to health through physical exercise, dance positively impacts mental wellbeing, confidence and social interaction. To sign up see www.hardygroupdementia.org.uk
- Creative Living – we have been delivering creative movement sessions for people over 55 in various parts of the city. These sessions have been helping to reduce social isolation.
- Dance for Recovery – a research project in Partnership with University of Derby, University of Northumbria, and Helix Arts. Our project focusses on the use of dance as a means to recover from Stroke.
