This is a program for people aged 65+ that offers the opportunity to work with professional artists to maintain physical health and make new friends through dance.
Based on what is written on the site, I imagined that it would be some kind of long event, something like spontaneous learning of a silent theatrical dance performance.
Before attending the event, we bought sweets and drinks for tea, and then went to the Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum. At the beginning, everyone warmed up, then the organiser brought a box with headphones for all participants. It was called “silence disco”, the point was that everyone danced and walked around the room to the rhythm of the music, and when it died down, they took any position they wanted.
Then half of the participants danced with headphones on their heads, and the other half of the participants had to guess what kind of music was playing by the movements of their bodies.
In fact, this event turns forced physical exercises, which, let’s face it, few people like to do – into a game. People laugh and have fun during the process, which is no less important than physical activity, and also associate themselves with art. Easy dancing, exercise and fun is what makes “Falling on Your Feet”.
