Move Dance Feel – Weekend Courses for Women Affected by Cancer

No contact has been listed for this event, please contact the venue listed below.


Move Dance Feel is a creative project for women affected by cancer, including those caring for someone with cancer, designed to offer holistic support and enhance wellbeing.

It uses dance as a medium for social cohesion and helps women to reconnect with the body after treatment.

‘I come feeling tired and I leave feeling like I have more energy.’ – Participant

We offer dance and movement sessions to adult women with any type of cancer, at any stage in their cancer experience – having just been diagnosed, undergoing treatment, or post- treatment. Participants are welcome to bring along a female friend or family member.

Move Dance Feel employs an inclusive and person-centred approach to facilitation where the dancing builds in response to the needs and abilities of the group, incorporating plenty of time for rest.

There is a particular focus on the physicality of dance, artistic exploration and creative collaboration. The courses will incorporate playful opportunities for interaction and quiet reflection.

‘It’s a psychological game-changer to come here.’ – Participant

‘This is a mix of connecting with myself, others, mind and body, a sense of some tightness unbinding.’ – Participant
