Digital Dance with Anderson’s Care Home

Choreographer Chris Stuart-Wilson worked on a dance project with residents and staff at Anderson’s Care Home in Elgin between December 2020 and February 2021. Inspired by a different musical theme each week, Chris worked alongside staff and residents – via Zoom – to create and learn dance routines and physical movements to music. This team work was crucial to the success of the project and the impact positive for both residents and staff.

This has been such a difficult year for us all and since this project began, our residents began to look forward to something again. It has kept them active and thinking about it throughout the week

This project was one of four creative collaborations, part of Creative ageing in the pandemic, exploring different ways that artists and older people can work together safely.
