By 2040, nearly one in seven people is projected to be aged over 75 in the UK.
Tamalpa UK has worked with older participants (65+) since our launch in 2012. One of our core beliefs is that every human being across the life span is a mover and a dancer, that dance it is not reserved for a select few of ‘elite dancers’.
Anna Halprin the founder of the Tamalpa Institute in California turned 100years of age in 2020. Anna and her life’s work is a living example and embodiment of what creative movement, artistic expression and a daily practice of listening to one’s own body can achieve, she was still teaching, dancing and presenting right up until turning 99.
Tamapa UK has worked actively to be inclusive in our public classes and our training programmes. Many of our older participants have demonstrated the following outcomes from experiencing and exploring the Tamalpa Life Art Process®
- Reduced social isolation and loneliness
- Higher moral
- Improved movement coordination
- Uplifting mood and ‘life force’
- Increase in quality of life
- Easing of pain in stiff joints
For upcoming classes and events
