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 chestertonballetschool@hotmail.com or call into the Centre on any Wednesday for a chat.

We would love to see you!

Expert Patient Programme

The next Expert Patient Programme starts on Monday 5th June, 2017. The course will be held at the Centre.

The course is made up of six consecutive weekly sessions each lasting two and a half hours from 10:30am to 1pm. The final session will be on Monday 10th July.

Anyone who has a long-term health condition can attend the EPP course.

Along with the Macmillan HOPE course and Take Control workshop, this self-management programme will help you to develop confidence in the daily management of your condition and meet others who have shared similar experiences. All the courses cover serious issues but there is also lots of laughter at the appropriate times!
