We have found our dance program to be beneficial for clients physical, mental and social well-being. Physically, improving strength, balance and muscle co-ordination. Mentally, we have witnessed many times over, improved well being and emotions from before to after class. Staff and managers have advised how a client has had challenging behaviours before class to being settled for the remainder of the day after participating. Clients and staff love the social aspects of music and having fun with others.
Groovability promotes a community of love for dance, music and performing arts while enhancing overall well-being.
