Yorkshire Dance is looking to recruit 4 freelance dance artists and 2 freelance musicians to lead on a three-year programme in care homes across Leeds.

In Mature Company will work with 9 care homes (3 per year) between June 2018 and March 2021 to explore the impact of dance and music in reducing the loneliness and isolation of residents living with dementia.

The programme will specifically look at the impact of touch and use Dementia Care Mapping as a research tool to better understand the impact of the sessions. The project will be delivered through a range of one-to-one sessions for people within their own rooms, small group sessions and larger group sessions.

In Mature Company is a three-year project, part of Time to Shine, a six-year programme delivered by Leeds Older People’s Forum and funded through Big Lottery Fund Ageing Better. Time to Shine takes a city-wide approach to addressing the social isolation of older people.
