‘There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.' Writer, Vicki Baum.

Dancing is a great way to meet new people, have fun and also a way that anyone and everyone can stay in shape and gain a range of positive health benefits. These include better flexibility, strength and stamina, and reduced stress.

At Ludus Dance, we understand that dance doesn't just help your physical wellbeing, it can help your self-confidence and just make you feel like smiling!

We're open to anyone of any age or any ability too in a warm and welcoming environment.

`I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety after I experienced the ‘too-fast' birth of my son at home. When I started I was really anxious and I explained that to the session leader. They listened to me and helped me settle in at my own pace. It didn't matter – and still doesn't – if I get it right or not. It's about enjoying it. It gives me a buzz and always puts a smile on my face. The positive feelings I get are far better than being on antidepressants. It takes the weight of the world off my shoulders and without Ludus Dance I'd still have been rocking in a corner!'

Vicki.

‘Taking part in the class helps me both mentally and physically. My flexibility has improved and I find it helps relieve quite a lot of the weekly stress you experience at work! I have met lovely people. I was a bit worried about going back into ballet classes at 41, but I have discovered that I'm not too bad at it still, and this has really boosted my confidence to do more dancing! To sum up my experience of Ludus Dance in one word... ‘quality', and that applies to the teachers, the location, the support and the studio.'
