Gail Hewton and Julie Chenery of GOLD Moves Australia are facilitating the Move Makers series of dance sessions in the Isaac region for older people, 55+ with and without mobility issues as well as dance or allied health professionals interested in leading dance sessions for older people.

Sessions for all ability levels will run from Monday 10 May to Saturday 15 May in Carmila, Moranbah, Clermont and Dysart.

Being fun, social and beneficial for physical health, brain stimulation and overall wellbeing, the classes are about possibilities not limitations with options to dance seated, standing, holding on to something, behind a chair or using a walker. Classes include a variety of dance styles to great music.

Participants don’t require any dance experience: just wear comfortable clothing and shoes and book into the session and location that suits them by completing the form below or phoning 1300 ISAACS. Places are limited.

Participants are requested to arrive 15 minutes before each session begins.

Gail and Julie will also return to Moranbah on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July to offer professional development for dance teachers and practitioners, allied health and care practitioners interested in using dance to aid the health and wellbeing of older people.

The Move Makers dance program is a cross regional initiative between Isaac and Mackay Regional Councils and is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Local Governments to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

Council is committed to maintaining safe event practices that comply with the Queensland Government framework for COVID Safe events.

The Move Makers dance sessions will operate under a COVID Safe Event Checklist, with a Statement of Compliance on display.

All attendees must comply with social distancing measures and use the hand sanitiser that will be available as required.

Please refrain from attending if you are unwell, have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, have returned from a declared COVID hotspot in the last 14 days or have been advised to self-isolate.
