A lunchtime feast of music and dance will launch an exciting new project making a difference to the quality of life of older adults in Leeds!
This event will showcase live performance and film by older performers from Yorkshire Dance, Academy of Northern Ballet Over 55’s class and Feeling Good Theatre Company and will also feature a sharing from guest Australian performance group The Golds.
Come along to find out more about exciting arts activities for older people, becoming part of our steering group and volunteer team or simply if you would like to be entertained!

This event is brought to you by LEAF partners (Yorkshire Dance, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Northern Ballet, Phoenix Dance, Leeds Grand Theatre and City Varieties and Opera North). Our project, Young at Arts, is part of Time To Shine, a 6-year programme being delivered by Leeds Older Peoples Forum. We will be connecting with community centres, health centres, care homes, retail and leisure spaces to put on regular sessions and some Weekends of Wonder for older people to get creative, get active and get connected.
We are looking for community partners and older people across the city to join in and join up – so please get in touch through Yorkshire Dance: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0113 243 9867 and come out to play!
Time To Shine is funded through Big Lottery Fund Ageing Better.
