Dance to Health

Aesop

Dance to Health is a pioneering nationwide falls prevention dance programme for older people, created in 2014.  As six pilots across England have shown, it offers older people the choice of an engaging sociable dance- based alternative to exercise based programmes. It adds the sociability, creativity and fun of dance to the evidence-based programmes (FaME and Otago which reduce falls by 55% and 35% respectively). A £2.3 million expansion programme is now underway building on a successful pilot in 2015 – 2016.
