About Dance On
Dance On is a fantastic opportunity to try something new, get active and meet new people. There are currently 23 classes taking place across Leeds and Bradford. Whether you’ve always danced, or you’re wanting to try something new, everyone is welcome and your first taster session is always free.
Dance On is currently funded by Leeds Public Health in Leeds and the Together Fund (Sport England/National Lottery funding in partnership with EMD UK) in Bradford.

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 carries out research on the programme which looks into how dancing can improve mobility, prevent falls and enhance mental wellbeing and brain function in older adults. The Dance On programme also has the potential to make cost savings for Health and Social Care.
