Welcome to DANCEINTHESOUTH

 

…the [social] dance experience is not only or simply a beneficial physical experience for
older people, it also bestows other significant benefits for those who enter the third age
and beyond…It offers a way to be sociable and have fun…It promotes a welcome sense of
community spirit. It is a way of becoming visible and aesthetically pleasing…dancers can
experience the joy of a fit and able body in both real and mythic senses.
(Cooper and Thomas, 2002, 689)

The quote above sums up about everything I stand for.

I am a dance-teacher and performer with a special interest in dance-movement for the elderly and people with Parkinson’s Disease.

I created this blog to offer information about my dancing classes and projects in and around Southampton and Winchester.

Please see the “my classes” section about classes available at the moment.

I am looking forward to seeing you.

Gabriel
