A fun tour of community spaces across Lancashire with a song and dance group of over 50s, a dance tutor and BBC Radio Lancashire presenters. Over a number of weeks the series used the Strictly Come Dancing phenomena to get people to ‘keep moving’! In partnership with the BBCs Learning department the events were also broadcast live from a variety of spaces including leisure centres, theatre foyers and dance schools as young and old joined the drop in sessions to learn simple steps, exercise and have fun.
