Next course runs from Wednesday 17th June to 9th September 2017.

See Sue’s flyer for details: ballet4f&f_june-sept17

About Sue and the course: Sue has over 40 years experience of teaching adults and children. Here’s what people say about the course ..

“Excellent activity for improving fitness and mobility. As an absolute beginner, I can see the benefits already.”

“Love every minute.”

About the sessions: These sessions are for anyone who would like to learn to improve their suppleness, strength, posture and breathing techniques. 

What to wear: Warm, comfortable clothing which allows you to move around freely and soft slippers/trainers. Ballet shoes (pink leather, suede-soled) may be ordered through Sue if you would like to have a pair. All proceeds will go to the Centre.

If you would prefer to come along and watch one of her sessions then please feel free to do so and enjoy watching a Ballet DVD as well as enjoying the music that is used to dance to. You don’t have to have any previous dance experience and you can join in at any time. All sessions are tailored to the participants abilities and if you wish to ‘sit out’ of any of the exercises you may do so.

If you are interested in joining these sessions please email Sue at or call into the Centre on any Wednesday for a chat.

We would love to see you!

Macmillan Take Control Workshop

The next Macmillan Take Control Workshop will be held at the Centre on Tuesday 12th September, 2017 from 12:30 to 3:30pm.

The Take Control Workshop brings together the most enabling and empowering aspects of the HOPE Programme, aspects which have been identified as essential to support you on your self-management journey as you strive to take control of your life.

The workshop is delivered by experienced and accredited HOPE facilitators and has been designed to extend the option of self-management to anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis. You can attend no matter what stage you are at: whether your cancer treatment has finished or you are still currently receiving it.
