Dance classes for all ages

Dancefest exists to enable anyone to experience the joy of dance. In our eyes everyone is a dancer, regardless of age, ability or experience.

Our work is about joining in and we run over 30 weekly classes across Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Case studies - who takes part in Dancefest's classes and projects?

Helen Stallard, the Chair of Dancefest’s board, has been talking to people who come (or used to come) to our classes, to celebrate their achievements and also help other people see how they can get involved with Dancefest.
