About The Dance On Toolkit

Whoever you are, and whatever has brought you here, we hope you find the tools you’re looking for to apply the Dance On approach in your own setting.

Dance On is a highly successful community-based dance programme for older adults in Yorkshire. Dance On is a partnership project, created by darts, Yorkshire Dance, One Dance UK and University of Leeds, to increase physical activity and reduce isolation.

In this toolkit we share our practical experience and knowledge of delivering Dance On, backed up by academic research, from across seven years. Having a dance programme for older adults in your area can increase physical activity levels, overall well-being, balance and mood as well as reduce fears of falling.
