Bolder not Older is a free dance programme for older adults aged 65+ in sheltered accommodation, care homes and health and wellbeing centres. Bolder not Older responds to the need to tackle loneliness, social and economic isolation and improve health and wellbeing of older people 65+ in West London. Our classes improve mobility, posture, balance and coordination and are for seated and standing participants. 

Bolder not Older was launched in 2015 in response to a survey we produced in partnership with arts, health and wellbeing teams in Hammersmith & Fulham. Bolder not Older is an inclusive programme that offers classes for active and  vulnerable adults with long term health conditions, disabilities and limited mobility. Our youngest participant is 65 and our oldest dancer is 98 years old. 

Makes us feel more alive! - Frank, St Charles

The staff are good, we have a laugh. I’ve met a lot of people here who I get on with - my dancing buddy. If I didn’t like it, you wouldn’t see me here. - Mary, Age UK

The dancing, music and people are wonderful. - Jenny, St Charles

It is very helpful for my knees and helped improve my arm movements a lot. - Sybil, Sycamore

I really enjoy the classes, it’s something I look forward to. -Erma, St Charles
