More about Dance On, our partners and research:
Dance On was established in 2018 in partnership with One Dance UK, regional partner Yorkshire Dance and local delivery partner darts (Doncaster Community Arts). Funded by Sport England Dance On aimed to establish at least 30 new dance groups aiming to support over 55s to stay active whilst also having fun.
The University of Leeds have carried out research on the programme finding that dancing can improve mobility, prevent falls and enhance mental wellbeing and brain function. The Dance On programme also has the potential to make cost savings for Health and Social Care.
