About this Event

Want to join in an Online Dance Flashmob to send your heart and body soaring?

Moving Together uses dance and music to improve mental wellbeing and connection with others.

Learn the moves in advance with our team of dancers as they demonstrate and teach in a series of workshops. You can take part in as many workshops as you wish. Then join in with everyone to dance together online and in a crowd. No dance experience is required.

Join dancer/choreographer Gemma Peramiquel in this online dance workshop and learn some of the moves you’ll need to get the most out of our Moving Together online flashmob experience.

Dance to a specially created soundtrack inspired by the voices of people experiencing loneliness and accompanied by original music from Quentin Lachapele.

This workshop will take place using the Zoom platform and starts on Monday 5 October at 18:00 (GMT) ending at 19:00 (GMT)
