Sit Down & Dance -Roscommon Arts Centre

Roscommon Arts Centre are running 6 weeks of a short, free, chair based dance/exercise class for older people called “Sit Down & Dance”. Dancer Minte Wolde is creating these 10 – 15 minute sessions and they will be available on their website and Facebook page @RosArtsCentre every Wednesday morning for the remaining two weeks.

The exercises are gentle, easy to follow, and a great way for older people to keep moving.

Recommendations

  • sit on a kitchen-type chair that has good support

  • a chair with arm rests is ideal

  • remove any cushions as they can be a slip hazard

  • place the chair close to a table for comfort

  • wear supportive footwear and comfortable clothing

  • have a glass of water to hand

  • turn up the volume and enjoy!

A new session will be made available HERE from 9.30am every Wednesday morning
