Life Circles is an innovative, imaginative and inspiring community dance project delivered by Core Dance, supporting the creativity of older people living in care settings. Through sessional activity, training and mentoring, the Life Circles project has enabled over 200 individuals in care settings in the South West to discover their creativity via physical participation in dance.
Life Circles Creative Movement Training
The Life Circles training course is not about teaching dance, but an exploration of how movement and dance can effectively engage with the individual as a whole person and improve their quality of life. With funding from South Somerset District Council we are now delivering a further Life Circles training programme open to care home staff and dance artists, practitioners and workshop leaders.
Dates and Details

Life Circles Mentoring Programme
Following the training sessions, a mentoring programme will be free to those who have already completed the training. Rachelle Green, Director of Core Dance, will work together with the trainees for three sessions in their care settings, to ensure that they are given bespoke support to take this work forwards and embed it into their settings.
