Brand new Wellbeing Wednesday classes will give people the change to try a different style each week, from musical jazz and theatre to carnival!

Déda’s 5 week online academy courses return to keep young people moving and connected during lockdown. Online Youth Company Class offers 10-19 year olds the chance to explore creative dance techniques, while Online: Illuminate brings together young disabled people aged 10 -25 years to dance in a friendly, welcoming environment.

Younger children will love Déda’s Saturday classes #DancingThroughDéda, designed to start their personal dance journeys. Online: Movers and Shakers is a fun and creative introduction to dance for under 5's and their parent or guardians. Children aged five to ten years are invited to Online: Street Jazz for Kids and Online: Ballet and Contemporary for Kids to kick off their weekends with music, dance and friends.

Déda’s online classes were launched in November 2020 as part of #LIVEInYourLivingRoom, a programme of events, performances, activities and blogs

to bring us closer through art and culture, while we remain socially distanced.

Clare Limb, head of dance development and learning at Déda says: “Déda’s online class programme has already impacted many lives; from a two year old

attending their first ever dance class to a person in their sixties attending their first ballet lesson in over fifty years. The classes have attracted local, regional and international audiences of all ages and abilities.

I am excited to introduce a new addition to our programme: Wellbeing Wednesday, a series of five classes in a range of different styles that gives you the chance to learn something new.These classes are designed to complement our online Derby Well programme of classes, which focus on being active and connecting with others.”
