Initiated in 2016 by Dance Artist, Emily Jenkins, Move Dance Feel is a creative project for women affected by cancer, including those caring for someone with cancer. It aims to provide an enjoyable experience, which encourages you to dance both individually and with others – offering an alternative means of group support.

The courses combine dynamic and creative movement activities with playful opportunities for interaction. There is a particular focus on the physicality of dance, artistic exploration and creative collaboration, as well as relaxation, quiet reflection and discussion.

Move Dance Feel enhances wellbeing through:

  • Positive Emotion
  • Peer Support
  • Creativity and Self Expression
  • Accomplishment

Move Dance Feel employs an inclusive and person-centred approach to facilitation where the dancing builds in response to the needs and abilities of the group, incorporating plenty of time for rest. Throughout the weekend we will move, talk, dance, explore and eat together – sharing meals at Penny Brohn UK, where accommodation is also provided.

These taster sessions are open to women only, over the age of 18 with any type of cancer and at any stage in your cancer experience – newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment and post treatment. If you have recently had surgery, we recommend being at least three months post-operative before taking part. If you wish to attend but are very ill or need a lot of physical support, we ask that you please bring a female friend or family member to support you one on one.

The sessions are delivered in an inclusive way, welcoming a variety of age groups and abilities, no prior dance experience is necessary.

Places on these taster sessions are limited. To secure your place, please contact the relevant location:
