AN INTERGENERATIONAL group has forged new friendships on the dancefloor.

Age Connects North Wales Central (ACNWC) got together with Dolwen day care centre and pupils from Ysgol Y Parc primary, both in Denbigh, on Monday, March 11 for a dance session.

The event coincided with Comic Relief's 24 hour Dance-a-thon featuring Strictly Come Dancing hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkelman. The charity best known for its Red Nose Day fundraisers, currently one of Age Connects projects Speak UP and the Music and Dance in Denbighshire Care Homes project.

Rebecca Bowcot, project manager for ACNWC said: "We hope the pictures will help keep Tess Daly and Claudia Winkelman motivated during their 24 hour Dance-a-thon and will raise valuable funds for Comic Relief.

This partnership, which is managed by Denbighshire Arts Service and delivered by NEW Dance and Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias Music Centre, provides one dance workshop and one music workshop per month to Dolwen - as well as Awelon in Ruthin and Cysgod y Gaer in Corwen - linking it to the school.

Through the project, Dolwen and Ysgol Y Parc have become firm friends with various intergenerational sessions run on a regular basis.
