Hear from Gail Hewton, the film maker and local community dance practitioner who will speak briefly about her practice, the benefits of dance for older people including sharing a couple of anecdotes from her practice of how dance has transformed the lives of participants.

Gail will also get you dancing to experience a little of her work. Engage in a Q & A with Gail Hewton, Director of RIPE Dance “In A Different Space is one of the most inspirational dance films I’ve seen in a long time.
