Senior Dance Company

Moving Together's Senior Dance Company are a cohort of dancers over the age of 55  who create and showcase pieces in various performance opportunities around the city and county. Classes aim to develop dance performance and technique through an exploration of different styles in a collaborative environment. 

The dance pieces created by the Senior Dance Company encompass a range of different narratives, concepts and subject matters which may be derived from experiences, cultural influences or well-known and loved musical productions.

The company follow the academic calendar and work towards one dance piece per term with the cohort meeting weekly on a Monday at Curve Theatre, Leicester.* There are 2 opportunities to join the programme within the year, one being prior to Term 1 in September, and the other being prior to Term 2 in January. 

The Senior Company have benefitted from some wonderful opportunities including performances and collaborative partnership experiences. Find out about some of these programme highlights in our photo slideshow below!

    As well as keeping fit physically and mentally agile, it provided a sense of belonging and comradeship which filled the void when I retired... being a part of the creative process has given me confidence to join other things, increasing my feeling of self worth which can so easily be lost in the later stages of life. 

Moving Together's Virtual Festival 2020 showcased an array of MTG and guest groups using previously filmed performances, edited rehearsal footage and dance pieces made for screen. Catch it all on Facebook.
