Dance for Wellbeing


Due to Covid restrictions classes have moved online and are held on Tuesdays and Fridays 11am – 12pm. Register in advance for the next zoom dance class at the ZEST website. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information and a link to join the class. Classes are $5 per participant.


WHEN?  Join us at around 10.50, so we have time to say hello, and you are ready to dance with us at 11.

YOUR SPACE: Be ready with a stable chair, a cleared space, in front of your computer, and on a non-slip floor.  Two and four legged friends are welcome to join in also! As usual, please wear clothing comfortable to move in, and have a bottle of water to sip as required.

ZOOM: If you have not done a ZOOM MEETING before, here is a link to the basics: How to access a zoom meeting

LOOK AFTER YOURSELF: Remember to perform the suggested movement in a way that works best for you, and rest any time you need to. 

FEEDBACK OR QUESTIONS?  Please email us or call Philip on 0417 417 182


Classes are designed for adults who want to keep their body and brain active and healthy, regardless of their mobility, skill or age. Come along and feed your body and spirit with music and movement; be physically and mentally inspired and stimulated, have fun, meet some new friends and feel good!

Dance is a unique vehicle, naturally combining multiple approaches to movement and exercise, building confidence and an improved quality of life. Taught by a team of highly experienced and dedicated dance artists (Jane Ingall, Jacqui Simmonds, Philip Piggin, Debora di Centa and Amy Macris), you will experience movement to music, much of it taking place seated in a circle of chairs, as you’re guided through a carefully planned program of dance activities.
