Dianna Project

Our DIANNA project featured work at Pannel Croft (over 55’s) Retirement Village throughout 2017. We focused on working with residents and used dance as a means to encourage the over 50s to get active and to improve their health and well-being. As well as the dance workshops, costume making sessions were also popular, encouraging residents to improve dexterity and hand/eye coordination and the skills to plan and create their own designs. Growing through word of mouth, the project extended to involve the wider community; visitors, people living in the local vicinity and neighbourhoods, family and friends.
