DanceMoves collaborates with John Lewis

DanceMoves has been in conversation with John Lewis.   Together with community liaison coordinator Christine Shaw, put in an application to Music Matters, and received a grant of £1000 to devise and deliver a series of consultation days for John Lewis partners.

DanceMoves, with John Lewis, will deliver two consultation sessions, bringing together John Lewis partners and people living with a Dementia. We will look at the impact music and movement have, and how dancing together can create health and wellbeing. We will look at what it is to live with a dementia, how we can all be affected by mood and memory. The sessions will last an hour and a half, and will be small. DanceMoves will invite people from the Dementia community to join selected John Lewis partners.

We will hold a tea dance at John Lewis in May 2017 to celebrate Dementia Awareness Week.
