We know how great dancing makes us feel, and so we’re championing our health and wellbeing projects which use dance and the arts to improve the quality of life for older adults in our local community. We focus on building strength, confidence and most importantly, building connections and support.

Déda is working on projects across the city and the county aimed at improving people's quality of life through dance and the arts.

Our Projects

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.

Creative Living – we have been delivering creative movement sessions for people over 55 across the city. These sessions have been helping to reduce social isolation.

Dance for Recovery – we are in the planning stages of 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 recovery from Stroke and is due to run April 2020 until 2022. We will be working with a Health Economist to look at the Social Return on Investment of the project.
