Social Dancing Classes

A series of social dancing classes will bring older people in our community together to improve wellbeing and social interaction through movement. Older people will have the opportunity to be creative, learning and remembering the jive, the quickstep and waltzes in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Organised by Age Friendly Wexford and supported by Creative Ireland these sessions are an important part of Creative Ireland Wexford’s wellbeing programme. Through creative activity and creative thinking, they stimulate holistic health benefits for individuals and animate the many local community hall venues that may otherwise be empty.

Led by experienced and friendly dance teacher Declan, the sessions are an opportunity to get out and take part in something fun with others. These free events are an excellent way to combat loneliness, something that many older people have reported feeling regularly since the Covid-19 lockdowns. Tea and coffee will be served afterwards, giving more opportunity to socialise and chat.
