It said - Thank you for all you do for my mum. It really brought it home to me when she said, “Going to Goldies made me realise I can dance again ...”
“MUM” is 82. She uses a wheeled walker as she has difficulty standing straight. She loves Goldies so much, she says “she’s addicted”.
Sue says “When Vera dances, there is a beautiful happiness about her. Vera says she now dances at home too and thanks to the dancing, she feels she is now able to stand straighter and she also has much more flexibility in her arms.“

Designed by Dr Afroditi Stathi and Jolanthe De Koning from the University of Bath to target the physiological concerns of older adults, the easy-to-learn routine accompanies a classic Goldies hit, Morecombe and Wise’s ‘Bring Me Sunshine’. Incorporating movements that strengthen independence muscles in the legs, improve cardiovascular fitness and develop upper body flexibility, this fun ‘exercise in disguise’ choreography has multiple real life benefits; standing and sitting, climbing stairs, reaching high shelves or boarding a bus will all be easier after repeat exposure to the Goldies ‘Active Song’.
Now being implemented across all our sessions, our purpose-designed ‘Active Song’ provides even further benefits to those who participate in Goldies sing-a-longs everywhere.
"The most important result was the statistically significant improvement in self-reported overall health from before their participation in the Goldies sessions to now."
