Let's Dance: A Dance Programme for Museums Movers of All Abilities

Manchester Museum partners with Dance Practitioner and Culture Champion Hazel Roy to offer a series of fun, uplifting and age friendly online Dance Lessons.

Dance at any age is a great way to tune up the body in a creative and fun filled way. It also helps to build stamina and to increase joint flexibility.


We believe that there is no ‘right’ way to dance and that everyone can enjoy and benefit from dance whether they are 9 or 90 years old.  We also believe that dance is not just about movement, but about telling stories, that´s why our lessons offer endless opportunities for self expression, navigating lots of dance styles in the same class –samba, tango, classical, jazz, reggae, motown, World music…


Inspired by stories from the Museum collections, we ensure that the pace changes to suit individuals needs and include a number of seated dances. Ever wondered if you could do the Can-Can or a Line


Dance sitting down? Well you can!


At the end of each class, will be some time for relaxing and participants will have the opportunity to share their ideas and music suggestions for future classes.
