Dance Well is Akademi’s participatory and performance programme to improve the health and wellbeing of the general population through the medium of South Asian Dance. Akademi’s learning and participation dance artists deliver workshops and intimate performances for all ages; from young children to older adults, in a range of settings from community organisations and care homes to hospital atriums and wards.
Alongside the participatory programme, Akademi runs a hugely successful performance programme across a number of London hospitals, including a long-standing partnership with Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust. Feedback from existing hospital programmes has demonstrated the positive impact these performances have on patients, visitors and staff alike.
Akademi maintains a high standard of artistic, performance and teaching quality across all of our programmes, ensuring dance artists receive regular training for delivery of dance in these settings.
