Now this episode of Health & Fitness for me is delightful to watch. The video led by the lovely Preston encourages the older generation to move and gain physical mobility by following the instructions and demonstrations by the elegant members of the Scottish Ballets ‘Elders’ class. When working with 55+ its apparent that it is not just about the physical activity but that there is also a social aspect. Like all community classes there is a need to feel part of a group and for many a dance session can provide this. Whether an individual can make it to the class or not, having a session available online will encourage the participant to fit in the weekly session from the comfort of their own home. I just hope that technology will allow us to create a virtual class where participants can interact with each other whilst taking part, capturing a sense of community and inclusion.
