PEACE of Mind: Dance with JG Dance Fitness

Date: Monday, October 10, 2022
Time: 11am - 12pm
Venue: The Courthouse
All materials and tools are provided.

Take part in our dance workshops and release yourself through the expressive medium of dance!

Dance has been scientifically proven to reduce levels of cortisol caused by chronic stress. It also causes the brain to release dopamine – a natural mood booster, and endorphins – a natural painkiller.

In this workshop you will have fun learning the positive impact dance can have on both the mind and body and let yourself loose within a fun and friendly environment.

Your tutor will be Jo Gatenby who is an experienced dance tutor who has trained at both the Scottish and Northern Schools of Contemporary  Dance. She works as a Dace in Education Manger with One Dance UK, as well as teaching regular Zumba classes at Thirsk Town Hall.
