Rock Around The Clock

St Thomas Church, Rainham

This is one of our routines that we worked on for a few weeks. It just shows how friendly the classes are, how friendships have been formed and how much fun we have. Dance exercise releases endorphins and sets you up for the day ahead. Come and give it a try!

 

About Us

What started off as a very small company, with only two classes running in Medway - has now become a growing family with six classes!  


Since opening its doors in 2008, 50+ Dance For Life has joined people together - by running exercise classes that are primarily for the older generation.  

We have Dance Exercises and Tap Dance classes all for your enjoyment - at 5 venues in the Medway Towns. 

We pride our classes on a fun and friendly environment, which allows you to express yourself through dance!

Testimonials

50+ Dance Exercise classes are a great way of helping you keep fit, flexible and keeping your mind active. Every class is rewarding, fun and well balanced. You put in as much energy as you are able to, you don't have to be a dancer! Never boring or difficult and you don't need a partner or a friend to take part. I joined being new to the area, 12 years ago and have never looked back!

Sylvia R

I have been a member of the 50+ group for over 14 years. I am in a class of 50-80+ years. These classes are a fun way to exercise, for older people and people with some limited mobility. Exercises are tailored to our needs and as well as a warm up and cool down, we do cardiovascular and balancing exercises. We also learn a dance over several weeks. And can request a piece of music or type of dance that we might like to do. The class is great fun, never too serious and quite often our laughing muscles are as well exercised as the rest of our body!

Rosemary E

50+ is the best way to stay agile and have fun. Skye makes every minute count, we don't laze around, we keep going, but Skye is very aware of our weaknesses and helps us find ways to deal with them. Apart from the music and exercise, we all enjoy the laughter and friendships made there. I am so glad I enrolled in this.
