Course Overview / Aperçu du cours



Dance your way through the summer – at home! Baycrest and Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) are pleased to offer a free six-week dance course as a pilot this summer, which can be accessed from your home or wherever you are.

Through its artistry and physicality, dance supports overall physical, emotional and social wellbeing. Regular dancing also helps develop skills and confidence, while enriching your day-to-day life through creative expression.

Developed by Baycrest and Canada’s National Ballet School, industry leaders in the respective sectors of geriatric care and dance training, this set of classes is designed to be accessible for older adults with varying physical and cognitive abilities. Classes are danced entirely from a seated position.

Classes are taught by professional dance teachers from Canada’s National Ballet School, are accompanied by a live musician, and include a variety of movement options. The six-week pilot program will include the release of one seated dance class, about 20 minutes in length, each week, and content will develop physically and artistically from one class to the next. This seated dance class is designed to be accessible to older adults with varying physical and cognitive abilities

Classes are free during this pilot phase, and we will gather feedback from participants for future iterations.

Join us this summer to embrace the transformative power of dance!

Course duration: 6 weeks (one class per week)
Length of each class: About 20 minutes
