The words below have come from an Arts Council publication called Dance and Health - The Benefits for all Ages.  It makes the point, quite rightly, that anyone can dance. In Vital Danza we use the music and the movement to invoke a feeling or sensation experienced in that moment.

The are no steps: you can't get it wrong....  Explore, express and embody positive emotions.


"In this country an increasing number of people lead sedentary lifestyles. The need to improve levels of physical activity and develop healthier lifestyles has never been more pressing. Dance can have a powerful effect on people’s lives and in order to see the physical, emotional, mental and social benefits of dance extended to as many people as possible we need to send out the message: ANYONE CAN DANCE...and enjoy dancing – young or old, male or female, disabled or non-disabled. Dance also has a long history of successfully building a sense of social cohesion within communities."                          Caroline Flint MP Minister for Public Health
