Over 50's Creative Dance Class
This is a fun and challenging class. Over a 6 week term the class learns both a new warm up sequence and dance based routine. There is an emphasis on safety and learning/ regaining physical skills that transfer into real life as well as being gloriously creative. Classes take place at the Pegasus Theatre, Oxford and participants often have a cup of tea ot lunch in the theatre cafe afterwards. Neither a chair based class or an aerobic work out, this calss offers the chance to be creative without the pressure of performing.
THIS CLASS IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
NEXT TERM BEGINS: WEDNESDAY 13TH APRIL .
11am -12pm AT PEGASUS THEATRE OXFORD
Please contact Emma for details
Special Needs Drop In Session
Weekly sessions in Barton Community Centre. Every six weeks the group begins a new topic which is explored through movement and music. Part teacher facilatated, participants also have room to share their own ideas and styles. A repetitive structure lends reassurance to students that require that security.
Tuesdays 10.30 - 11.30 Barton Community Centre
After School Clubs
Emma currently runs closed session After School Clubs at SS Mary and John Primary School in east Oxford. Her classes include drama games, putting on a play, 'pop' dance and cookery.
"it's a fun way of keeping fit. I always feel more flexible after the class, important for those of us who are stiffening up. It's nice to express yourself through the music. Listening to 'old' tunes has a good emotional effect. And being in a nice, friendly group is good news for those of us who live on our own. However, it all depends on the class and the teacher is crucial for this. Enjoyment and challenge is more important than getting it right. Emma is great at this. Some other classes have made me feel that I am too old to keep up." - Participant
