Dancing with Parkinsons

The Dance Network Association is pleased to announce Dancing with Parkinsons has returned to Colchester Castle and William Loveless Hall, Wivenhoe for 2020.


With thanks to Colchester Castle, Wivenhoe Town Council, generous donations from Cllr Helen Chuah and Cllr Simon Crow as well as participant donations, we have been able to continue this fantastic programme of sessions to support residents living with Parkinsons, in the local community.

Dancing with Parkinsons offers those living with Parkinson's a chance to experience creative movement and dance with their partners, friends, family and carers. Classes are led by a Professional Dance Artist and encourage positive physical and mental wellbeing. The class concludes with time to chat over tea & coffee, thereby increasing the sense of community and building support networks.

Currently running once a month in Wivenhoe, and once a month in Colchester, we continue to seek funding to support sustainability of these sessions for the residents of Wivenhoe and Colchester beyond 2020, with an aim to funding sessions on a weekly basis
