Amy is passionate about improving the health and well-being of older people through dance. She currently  facilities creative dance sessions for older adults in a variety of settings including, care homes, day centres and community spaces.

She has worked with Pembroke House and Moving Waves in delivering seated dance sessions in care homes and day centres. 

Her classes begin with a seated and / or standing warm up to mobiles and energise the body, joints and mind. Participants are then led through a series of coordinating and stretching sequences to develop movement memory, flexiability and strength. Creative movement follows which is inspired by a variety themes, props and music. The section is informed and infused with the participants own movement and creative suggestions, promoting creativity, communication self-expression and confidence.

The class closes with a cool down and relaxation to enable participants to refocus and bring their heart rate down to prevent injury.
