Dance and older people "THE SOUTH WEST HAS THE HIGHEST PROPORTION OF PEOPLE OVER 65 IN ENGLAND AT 19.8% (2011), AND THIS FIGURE IS EXPECTED TO RISE TO 22.8% WITHIN 10 YEARS."

Dance for Older People

Between 2013-2015 PDSW is focussing on developing its creative and health work with older people. A consultation with agencies and practitioners throughout the South West highlighted a wide range of programmes and projects working with our communities of older dancers across the region. It also highlighted that the development of these programmes suffers from a lack of sustained resourcing.

In 2013 we produced a leaflet about Creative Ageing Through Dance to highlight some of the excellent dance programmes being delivered across the South West. We also employed a Dance & Older People Producer, Clare Parker, through 2013 to map activity, and are currently developing plans and fundraising to support a pan-regional team of producers focused on delivering long term programmes for dance and older people.
