WILLETT HOUSE RESIDENTS ENJOY CIRCLE DANCING

19 October 2017

Residents at Willett House recently enjoyed an afternoon of circle dancing. Residents performed a series of different movements from the comfort of their chairs using percussion instruments in time with the music. They also used a stretchy band covered in sequins, bangles and scarves which is designed to create a sense of belonging. The music was from around the world and had different rhythms and stories to accompany it.

“Circle dancing classes are something we hold regularly here at Willett House”, noted Karla Osborne, Activity Carer. “Residents really enjoy the classes as many of them used to dance and the circle dancing still allows them to move together whilst having fun too.”
