Penny Smith School of Dance was struggling to get going running her community dance sessions after all that has happened over the last year. Big Local North Cleethorpes were able to help Penny to purchase some new sound equipment for the sessions through our covid recovery grant process. Penny is now pleased that all of her restarted classes are now nearly full (to the permitted capacities) and going well.
Both of the venues Penny uses are in Cleethorpes and over two thirds of those attending her classes are Cleethorpes residents. The students – many more mature – point out that the benefits to themselves are priceless – social interaction; regular exercise; mental health; mobility and balance and more.
There are a dozen tea dance classes; social ballroom and line dancing classes every week and the benefits to Cleethorpes residents are obvious.
