“Falling on your Feet” is a dance programme for over 65s designed to counter social isolation and a fear of falling to reduce admissions to hospitals and care homes in the long term.
Participants co-choreograph a piece of work over three months with a practising artist in a neighbourhood centre. They have fun, get fit – and it’s all for free thanks to an innovation grant from Newcastle/Gateshead CCG NHS.
“Falling on your Feet” is a Helix Arts production with choreographer Nadia Iftkhar.
Northumbria University is supporting Helix Arts programme evaluation.
