Please note: These workshops are for people who have completed cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation within the last 6 months.
These sessions, run by Akademi’s Dance Well project, will take place weekly for a period of 12 weeks with classical Indian dance artists Rachel Waterman and Hiten Mistry.
Dance Well is Akademi’s 3-year community participation project funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund. The project provides regular opportunities for adults to attend dance and movement sessions, partnering with charity organisations, care homes, day centres and hospitals, as well as community learning and education providers.
The workshops form an integral part of our HRA approved research study investigating the impact of South Asian dance classes on physical fitness and mental wellbeing in post-rehab pulmonary and cardiac patients.
