Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from a class?


Our classes are live, interactive and engaging. This means that our members not only watch but are also encouraged to engage with each other throughout the class. You can expect a healthy dose of feel-good energy and lots of laughter in our lively and creative classes. To find out more, please refer to our class description section.




How do I prepare for virtual classes?


You will be sent a link to join when you register for the class. You can join using any device - a laptop, tablet or smart TV. If the speaker on your device does not have sufficient volume, it may be worthwhile considering using an external set of speakers which can be found at any electronic goods store. Please find a quiet area to join the class. Try to reduce any background noises - it is helpful to mute the TV and radio while attending the class. This will help you hear the class most optimally.




How long are the classes?


Each class is 60 minutes long. We dedicate the first 10 minutes to introductions and checking in with each other. The following 40 minutes are dedicated to exploring creative engagement activities, having meaningful conversations, enjoying gentle movement, etc. We use the last 10 minutes to wrap up the session and share reactions and key takeaways.




Are there any discounts?


Yes! Please subscribe to our bi-weekly newsletter to receive 50% OFF your FIRST class.




Do you have any adaptation for visual, hearing or mobility differences?


We offer closed captions for people with hearing differences. Our seated creative movement and dance sessions are suitable for people who need the support of a chair while exercising.




Do I have to have memory loss to participate?


Not at all! Even though our classes are created with people living with memory loss in mind, they are also suitable for the wider community. In fact, we offer a respectful and stimulating space for anyone who is interested in the arts and appreciates thoughtful engagement. Our program welcomes people of all ages and we encourage anyone to participate as part of our goal to change the way people living with memory changes are perceived.




Can I purchase classes as a gift for someone?


Yes! Please see our 4 Class Gift Card option HERE!
