Unique dance sessions open to all in Banbury

5 December 2016

People in Banbury are invited to get their groove on in unique dance sessions designed to be suitable for people in wheelchairs.

Activate Banbury

Funded by Sanctuary Housing, and in partnership with Cherwell District Council (CDC), Activate Banbury is offering inclusive wheelchair dance sessions for people of all ages, experience and abilities.

The 12 week programme, which started on Thursday 1 December, will take place at Frank Wise School on Hornbean Close every Thursday between 4-5pm, with a short break for Christmas.

The style of dance and music will be chosen according to the tastes of the people attending on the day.

“Help people to get fit and active”

Kate Winstanley, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring these sessions to residents from across Banbury. Not only will they help people to get fit and active, but they will also give them a chance to have fun, increase their confidence and get to know others from the local community.”

Love Sport

Activate Banbury forms part of Sanctuary’s nationwide Love Sport programme, a partnership with Sport England, which aims to engage more than 2,250 people in sport and fitness activities in neighbourhoods across the country.

Sanctuary’s investment in the five-year programme has been match-funded by Sport England, through National Lottery investment, to help deliver the sport and activity sessions.
