Dancing with dementia at Blackpool Tower to help raise elderly spirits

Dancing is well known to have many health benefits – and people with dementia put the theory to the test during a special event at Blackpool Tower.

Dozens of people and their carers were invited to ‘Dancing with Dementia’ in the spectacular surroundings of the ballroom.

The event, which was launched last year with special appearances by Strictly Come Dancing stars Robin Windsor and Kristina Rihanoff, saw the group enjoy an afternoon of ballroom dancing, music and a host of dementia-friendly activities.
