Give yourself something to look forward to this New Year with classes that focus on your physical and mental wellbeing.
Déda is delighted to welcome people of all ages and abilities to join them for a programme of online dance, fitness and yoga classes from Monday 11 January.
Popular drop-in adult classes Ballet to Make You Feel Better and Rock the Hoop (hula-hoop dance class), return by strong demand from local, national and international audiences following their introduction last November. The classes, which are part of the #DerbyWell programme, are designed to help physical and mental well-being.
Following the success of the autumn term, Déda has expanded their range of drop-in adult classes to include Yoga with Michelle on Tuesday evenings from 5.30pm. This simple, accessible Yoga class with a fusion of meditation, movement and breath, is the perfect way to unwind from the day.
Déda’s 5 week online Academy courses return to keep young people moving and connected during the winter months. Youth Dance Company Class offers young people aged 10- 19 the chance to explore creative dance techniques, while Illuminate brings together young disabled people aged 10 -25 years to dance in a friendly, welcoming environment.
Younger children will love our Saturday classes #DancingThroughDéda, designed to start their personal dance journeys. Movers and Shakers is a fun and creative introduction to dance for under 5’s and their parent or guardians. Children aged 5 – 10 are invited to Street Jazz for Kids and Ballet and Contemporary for Kids to kick off their weekends with music, dance and friends.
So, if you or your child has always wanted to try dance, would like a new experience for 2021 or just want to connect with others, why not give a class a try?
Déda’s online classes are part of #LIVEInYourLivingRoom, a programme of events, performances, activities and blogs to bring us closer through art and culture, while we remain socially distanced.
January’s #LIVEInYourLivingRoom programme includes the CUBE’s monthly bookclub on the last Thursday of the month, free online exhibitions and a free performance of Knot presented by Nikki and JD which will be held on Facebook on 21 January at 7.30pm.
Clare Limb, Head of Dance Development and Learning at Déda says:
“Whether it’s a new year’s resolution to increase your fitness and flexibility or simply a way of improving your health and well-being in these difficult times through being active, connecting with others or learning something new, Déda’s online classes have something for you – all delivered directly into your own home by expert tutors via Zoom.
Rock the Hoop class participant says:
“The perfect way to wake up! Rochene was encouraging & supportive and hoop was really fun. I feel ready to start the day”
