SOSA is the ‘Start Of Something Amazing’!!


SOSA & Starlets CIC offers a fully inclusive, affordable and accessible ‘Specialised dance programme incorporating seated exercise and Falls Prevention, leading to improved Functional Fitness for ALL’.

Using our unique and innovative approach, this project/programme has been designed with special considerations, using evidence-based research to develop movements and exercises that have been proven to improve strength and balance, reducing the risk of falls, improve functional fitness and promote higher levels of independence.

SOSA brings the ‘FUN’ factor to supported ‘FUNCTIONAL’ exercise, with balance, strength, co-ordination, mobility and cognitive training incorporated into each one-hour session. This is done through the power of dance and movement with a qualified instructor leading every session, using authentic international dance styles and music genres spanning the past century.

Our overall aims:

  • Give EVERYONE the chance to dance to improve functional fitness, and improve overall health & wellbeing
  • Improve the health of individuals who have deteriorated due to the constraints of the pandemic
  • Reduce levels of social isolation imposed during the pandemic
  • Increase accessible exercise opportunities for those in priority & high-risk groups, such as older adults with comorbidities, providing a specialised dance programme designed to improve strength and balance, reduced the risk of falling and maintain independence.
  • Reduce the burden and cost impact to the NHS due to rates of falls, treatments, hospitalisation
  • Make a positive impact, nurturing physical, emotional and psychological health, tackling inactivity, and exclusion.
  • Make the sessions affordable and easily accessible

We want to support currently inactive people to become more active, providing a fun activity incorporating ‘evidence-based exercises’ that provide many physical benefits, using community venues to promote their value within local communities.

Our priority target groups are older adults, disabled participants, GP/Health Referral clients and vulnerable adults with long-term health conditions and co-morbidities.

Our classes facilitate opportunities for community engagement for our participants, giving people the chance to meet other members of their local community, whilst connecting over coffee/tea available after each session, helping to tackle social isolation following the COVID pandemic.

Having recently completed various successful trials/case studies of our programmes, it is key for us to continue developing to provide more provision for access, and further grow a robust referral scheme, including other health professionals and community initiatives/schemes.

We aim to connect with GP Surgeries, physiotherapists and other community services, with the goal of becoming a part of the NHS social prescribing and injury rehabilitation programmes. These professional partnerships will lead to a wider audience, more referrals and help to secure the future sustainability and longevity of providing FULLY INCLUSIVE DANCE ACTIVITES FOR ALL.
