Community Programme

image description

Three Score is committed to promoting dance for older people and the associated benefits for physical and mental health. In addition to performances in  local and regional venues, company members are involved in various outreach activities in the community.

Care Homes

Company members have been working with Rosaria Gracia, choreographer and university lecturer, on a ‘dance exercise’ programme for residents in local care homes. The sessions involve residents and Three Score members dancing together for a few weeks using Rosaria’s exercise routines. The sessions have proven enjoyable and moving for both residents and company members alike.

Following a successful funding bid to the Sussex Community Foundation we will be developing further training. Rosaria will be running a workshop on Dance and the Ageing Body, as well as sessions introducing the outreach programme to new volunteers from our Company and Classes. There will also be training in leading the programme for existing volunteers. We hope this will enable us to widen the use of the programme.

StopGap

StopGap Dance Company create exhilarating dance performances involving disabled and non-disabled dancers in innovative and collaborative ways. Three Score members have worked with StopGap and the Grace Eyre Foundation on two summer schools. They involved sharing dance practice and creating an original work. The outcome was a joyous informal sharing of the work with family and friends.
