Residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Bromsgrove had an amazing time dancing the afternoon away thanks to an inspirational arts project.
‘Dancing the Day’ – a partnership between movement-play specialists JABADAO and full mask theatre company VAMOS – came to Breme Care Home recently for an afternoon of movement and music.
The home, which provides care for the elderly, including residential care and dementia care, was filled with music and vibrant energy as the performers and residents engaged in joyful and spontaneous movement.
Helen Barron, Breme’s activities leader said: “It was absolutely wonderful and our residents loved it. It was such a pleasure to watch – just awesome.”
JABADAO has 30 years’ experience of creating exuberant, playful, engaging dance events for older people.
VAMOS takes award-winning theatre to all sorts of settings, including schools and care homes, engaging and inspiring inter-generational audiences.
The event followed the launch of a two-year arts project, which aims to shine a light on the talents of residents through creative arts, across Sanctuary Care’s 61 homes, called Shine!
It has been funded through Sanctuary Group, Sanctuary Care’s parent company and is part of the Group’s commitment to supporting projects and initiatives which benefit residents and the communities they live in.
Shine! aims to shine a light on the individuals living in our care homes, encouraging their participation in arts-based sessions, including theatre, movement, music and film.
The programme is funded through Sanctuary Group, Sanctuary Care’s parent company, and is part of Sanctuary’s commitment to highlight the potential and talents of older people through quality arts experiences.
